Hello UK Board! I asked this question on the general community board, but nobody knew the answer and I know all of you will! What exactly does the head boy or girl do in school and how is he/she selected. I am guessing they are selected based on grades and behaviour, but then again, James Potter was a head boy and he was hardly well-behaved. So in a real school, how does it work? Were any of you head boy or head girl?
