How does the head of school differ from the head teacher or the prefect?

From my experience, primary schools have head teachers and secondary schools have heads of schools. Also, the head teacher teaches, whereas the head of school does not (like a principal/headmaster). I could be mistaken..

Thank you, it's not a system I am familiar with, so this helps a lot. I have also heard from another commenter that a prefect is a student given some sort of responsibility over other students. I have learned a surprising about about educational systems from this course.
