Weston College, established near the River Thames, is widely regarded as Great Britain's finest public school.[1]

Geography

Vast premises contain the complex school building. The school is composed of a gothic-style chapel and four historical student dormitories.[2]

Overview

Weston College is a closed-off area that does not tolerate anything, not even government intervention.[3]

Weston College

Weston College.

The students of Weston College are under strict discipline that stresses the importance of traditions and customs. They are raised to become the sophisticated gentlemen of Britain through an exclusively boys' dorm life and their individual high-level educational curriculum.[2]

In order to obtain that prominent status, the nobles send their sons to the school, regardless of the extremely high fees.[2]

Since the school's founding, its custom is that the headmaster decides all matters within the school, and his or her decisions are absolute and incontrovertible. The headmaster also chooses the prefects to govern the school. Tradition is crucial and it constitutes to the school's system.[4]

Events

June 4th

On June 4, the school's traditional cricket tournament takes place, having been held for over a century. The grand tournament happens annually, and the winning dormitory hosts a boat parade to celebrate its victory. There are two events to commemorate the eve and end of the tournament, and on these two days, students are exceptionally allowed to invite their families and important acquaintances to the school's dining hall.[5]

The Headmaster

Regular students are not permitted to meet with the headmaster, hence only prefects can. However, prefects' Fags have the ability to meet up with him as well if they attend the Midnight Tea Party with their respective prefects, an event organized by the headmaster himself.[6][7]

The headmaster's office.

The office consists of a spacious room with vast, intricate windows. Gears hover overhead, and there is a rug along that extends to steps which lead up to the headmaster's desk. Pipe organs are set to the sides of the room, and a large pendulum swings in the center.

The Vice Headmaster

Weston College Book

Students' signatures are required in the book.

If the headmaster is too busy to welcome new students, the vice headmaster is to represent him. He is to relay the school's traditions and make the new students pledge their obedience to the school by writing their signatures in a book. Weston College's current vice headmaster is Johann Agares.[8]

System

Prefects

Prefect Four

The (initial) four prefects.

Prefects, or house leaders, are called the "Prefect Four," which is often shortened to "P4."[9] Their duty is to monitor their respective house and ensure that the other students conform to the standards and regulations of the school. The P4 usually gathers and socializes at the Swan Gazebo.[10]

There are a total of four prefects, one from each house. The prefects were originally Edgar Redmond (Red House), Lawrence Bluewer (Blue House), Herman Greenhill (Green House), and Gregory Violet (Purple House). Currently, the prefects are an unknown individual (Red House), Clayton (Blue House), Edward Midford (Green House), and Cheslock (Purple House).[11]

Rules

Rules are established in order to administer the school accordingly. Students are to swear to obey these rules and the school's tradition and discipline. Their pledge is then made official when they sign a certain book.[12]

  • Number 15 states: At all times, you should share your hearts with your friends, and help them out with love.[13] Every student has to be equal under the headmaster.[14]
  • Number 48 states: The only ones allowed to cross the lawn are the prefects or those granted permission by them.[15]
  • Number 87 states: In case of an alarm such as a fire in the school or one of the dormitories, all students should rapidly seek refuge in the school gardens and have prefects take a roll-call.[16]

Unspecified Rules

  • It is against the rules to be called by the first name, as stated by Lawrence Bluewer.[17] However this doesn't seem as strictly reinforced as the other rules, as several people are seen to be breaking this particular rule without severe repercussions.

Fag Time

Fag Time is one of Weston College's characteristic traditions where the lower years are obliged to help out the upper years. For instance, their duties may require cleaning the upper years' rooms, ironing their uniforms and preparing hot water bottles at night.[18]

Not only upper years, but prefects have fags as well. Prefects' fags have special rights such as they are allowed to wear the dormitory flower on their chest similar to the P4 and they can cross the lawn if permitted.[19] They may also accompany the prefects whilst they are in the Swan Gazebo.[20] Furthermore, the prefects' fags may attend the midnight tea party organized by the headmaster together with the P4.[7]

Penalty

Failure to follow the rules results in a penalty. Penalty is measured by the penalty points "Y" given. If one is given a "Y," the said student is required to transcribe a Latin poem one-hundred times.[9]

Just like most schools, the ringing of the bell controls the lives of the students. Students have a certain schedule that they need to follow.
