Jack Petchey Award

The Jack Petchey Achievement Award recognises and rewards achievements of pupils aged 11 – 19. Students are nominated by their peers, staff members, parents and friends of the school for something they have worked exceptionally hard at or something really positive they have done for others.

An award winner is selected each month by the Jack Petchey Co – ordinator for the school Michael Sinanan.  The winner receives a certificate and money to spend on a school project, resources for their classroom or a school club etc. The school council may also be involved by drawing up a list of suggestions for ways the money may be spent in school.

Autumn Term Winners are:

George took part in Outward Bound Activities and met a week of challenges and met every with tremendous enthusiasm.

He was always determined to succeed and, despite personal challenges, listened to the instructors and was able to follow the rules.


Daniel Pudge

Daniel made outstanding personal progress on the Outward Bound Course this year. He is a naturally quiet person who was able to meet every challenge with calm determination.

It was a pleasure for all of us to see Daniel meeting so many challenges and enjoying the company of his friends 300 miles away from home.
