Mr Pratt and the Prefects 1982-3

Are these really prefects? Only one has a prefect's stripe above the breast pocket of his blazer. Was that system discontinued? A recently posted photograph from 1978 shows all the prefects displaying their stripes (the system was red for school captain, blue for vice-captains and yellow for the others). I find it hard to believe that the "prefects" would have been so few in number and accompanied by a man in a "tracksuit". Or had standards fallen by that time?
