The Jack Petchey Foundation was established by Sir Jack Petchey CBE to inspire and celebrate young people. Since 1999, over £133 million has been invested into programmes to benefit young people aged 11-25 across London and Essex.

Trinity Catholic High School is pleased to participate in the flagship programme the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme which recognises outstanding young people.

Jack Petchey Achievement Award winners are young people who have gone above and beyond to achieve – perhaps when others though they might fail.

Each year, the Foundation recognises 14,000 winners and invest £3.5 million through this Awards Scheme.

Awards mean different things to different people. The Achievement Awards are not solely for academic achievement – they may be use to recognise a personal triumph for someone who has faced a challenge, a young person who has pushed themselves outside of their comfort zone or it may be an opportunity to recognise the outstanding efforts of a team player.

A young person is nominated by their peers within the school. An important part of the scheme is the involvement of young people in selecting the awards winners for their hard work and efforts. The Foundation would like young people to recognise and celebrate the success of their peers.
