Sadly, kids do that, and they can be exceptionally cruel to each other, maybe because they can, even without realizing it, tap into their own fears and insecurities to use this against another.
In the incident you quote, go firmly and assertively to the headmaster, pointing out that she was wearing only the school approved ear studs, and that the prefect had no right to do what she did. Ask for an apology from the prefect, as publically done as was the assault. And mention whatever the other examples have been, and what he/she can suggest to improve her happiness at the school. Use this as an example to see how good the headmaster and school are at dealing with problems.
If they prove unsatisfactory, condier making the move to the other school if this is practical. I don't see why it should be a problem for her, if her English is good enough ( I'm guessing it isn;t her home langauge ? ) for her to manage with all her lessons being in English
But Romany's view is a good one, too. By keeping strictly within the school's rules and codes, she can avoid giving the nasty one's any legitimate reason for upsetting her. And she's right, that if they don't find they can upset her, the harridans are likely to move on to someone easier to upset. But that's why the headmaster needs to intervene because bullying must never be tolerated in any school, for any reason.
