Jack Petchey Awards Evening 2019
On the 15th October 2019, nine students representing every year group attended the Jack Petchey Achievement Awards Event at the Clapham Grand. The awards are designed to celebrate the fantastic achievements of young people as far and as wide as possible.
Over the academic year 2018-19, Heads of Year and the Junior Leadership shortlisted and then selected our 10 award winners. Details on their achievements are shown below:
Maddie T & Simeiya D
Maddie & Simeiya went above and beyond the call of duty for Year 7 Charity Week. Maddie with
Silmeiya sold all of the red noses and spent many break and lunchtimes counting (and
re-counting) the money. Both girls did it all with such grace and compassion and are
outstanding ambassadors not only for Year 7 but for the whole school.
Lacy’s attitude to learning in Drama is outstanding. Lacy supported another student who
doesn’t speak English. She used gestures and took her time when explaining things, which
had such a positive impact on this one particular student’s learning. Lacy has also
achieved one of the highest Drama grades in her year group.
Koko is kind and helpful to students and staff alike.

resilience and was back in school shortly after. She then with a group of friends wrote
and presented an assembly about Road Safety to the whole of Year 8.
