Jack Petchey Awards
Established in 1999, The Jack Petchey Foundation gives grants to programmes and projects that benefit young people aged 11-25.
The Foundation exists to raise the aspirations of young people, to help them take advantage of opportunities and play a full part in society.
Staff and students are nominated for their awards by other members of staff and the winners of both awards are selected by the student voice committee.
The Leader Award is given to a member of staff for their tremendous help and assistance provided to the students, they can then apply for a £500 grant for the school. These grants in the past have provided gymnasium equipment, hurdles, a telescope and drama props. They have also enabled students to go on school visits to the Science museum and ice skating.
