Past Captains

Prior to 1862, captaincy was exercised informally by the imperator (leading scholar) of Rhetoric.  From 1862, when games against external opposition began, the boys formally elected a captain for the first time.  The captain was appointed by the Rector from 1923, after the introduction of boy prefects (since 1980, known as House Leaders)
