Jack Petchey Award winners

On Monday 4th November 2019 students from St Philip’s and Bedelsford schools headed to Richmond Theatre to receive their Jack Petchey Achievement Awards for academic year 2018-19.  Jack Petchey Achievement Award winners are young people who have gone above and beyond to achieve – perhaps when others thought they might fail.

Nine students from St Philip’s and three from Bedelsford were presented with the award by The Worshipful the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames, Councillor Margaret Thompson.  Amanda Stark, Head of Post 16 at St Philip’s School, was in the audience and said how “heartwarming it was to see how far our young people have come.”

The Jack Petchey Foundation was set up to inspire and motivate young people and recognise them for their achievements.

The Jack Petchey Foundation was set up by Sir Jack Petchey CBE to inspire and celebrate young people. Since 2000, over £124 million has been invested in programmes to benefit young people aged 11-25 across London and Essex.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
