The Sacristan team is made up of four Senior Sacristans, together with 11 House Sacristans who are selected from each Day and Boarding House.

Students become eligible to fulfil this Chapel prefect role in their final year.

The Sacristans are one of the hardest working groups of leaders in the College, and traditionally do an outstanding job. Their role is to support the work of the Chaplains, to be a role model for other students in faith and character, and to also help organise aspects of the Community Service Programme.

“Being a Senior Sacristan has taught me to connect more deeply with God on a regular basis through the Chapel and other areas around King's College. As part of the Sacristan team, I’ve learnt great life lessons of faith and trust, which I will carry on through the rest of the year and beyond the College.”

– Tamati Panoho, Senior Sacristan.
