Jack Petchey Award Winners!Posted on: 16/12/2020
We are delighted to announce the winners for the Jack Petchey Award for 2020. The Award is not about "being the best" but rather about recognising and celebrating students who have "done their best" - and what an extraordinary year in which to celebrate their efforts!
The winning students have the opportunity to choose how to spend their £250 award for the benefit of a group of young people they are connected with.
Congratulations to them all! We look forward to more awards in 2021!

Pre-lockdown and during lockdown, Lama has been consistent and actively engaged with all learning resources which have been made accessible. Lama is a high attaining student who is consistently progressing with good grades. Lama is also kind and caring and looks out for others without realising she does.

Sayeda's work ethic during the lockdown was exemplary. In the face of difficult circumstances, she continued to go above and beyond with her work towards her GCSEs, attending and contributing to all Google Meets and completing additional work. She is focused on achieving her goals and has shown determination to best prepare for her future at all costs through attending extra academic sessions and feedback meetings as well as applying for external opportunities to put herself in the best position for going into further education.
Demario (Year 10)
Prior to lockdown, Demario could be lacking in motivation and lazy in lessons, but during lockdown this changed! Demario started writing poems! Since returning, Demario has worked continuously hard to achieve recognition for the progress he is making. Demario is a well mannered young man who has grown to understand and like school. We couldn't be prouder.
