Jack Petchey

The Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme is running in over 1000 schools, colleges and clubs. Established in 1999, it started in East London, but now operates in all London Boroughs and in Essex.

It is a scheme to recognise and celebrate the achievements of young people, to help them take advantage of opportunities and to play a full part in society. Grants of over £35 million have been given since the establishment of the Foundation. Over the course of the school year, Harefield School is able to make 9 awards to individual students on our Gold Scheme.

Organisations on the scheme nominate young people they would like to celebrate and acknowledge for an Achievement Award. Each award winner then receives a certificate, pin badge and a book from Sir Jack himself. They also choose how to spend a £300 grant to benefit their school or organisation. As well as this, organisations on the scheme get to apply for a package of other small grants throughout the year

Students can be nominated by their peers, staff, parents or governors (and need to fill in a nomination form which can be placed in the box in reception – blank forms available in reception or by downloading a form from this page). Students should be nominated if they have done something really positive for other people or are exceptionally hard working.

The nomination form can be found here.
