Jack Petchey Award

We are very proud to be members of the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme. This allows us to present nine awards over the course of an academic year. The winners are chosen by our students, with students being chosen for a range of reasons such as their commitment to the academy, helpfulness to others, contribution made to our community and so on.

Winners receive the following:

  • A certificate signed by Jack Petchey
  • A lapel badge to be worn on their blazer
  • An invitation to one of the annual celebration events
  • The opportunity to decide how a £200 grant will be spent in the academy to benefit them and their fellow students.
