Jack Petchey Awards

DJBET电竞菠菜人 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 recognize 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, KEGS is able to make 8 awards to individual students.

The winner of each award receives a framed certificate and £250 in the form of a cheque made payable to KEGS. The money is then spent on a school or community project of the recipient’s choice.

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.

Each of the three school councils chooses an Award Winner for a student in their section of the school.
