Jack Petchey Achievement Awards



Over 1600 schools, colleges and youth organisations throughout London and Essex run the Jack Petchey Achievement Award scheme, which contributes millions of pounds each year. The scheme is a reward and recognition initiative which enables schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people as well as receive additional funding.

At Chadwell Heath Academy there are nine award winners each year, three per term. Students can be nominated by staff or pupils.

Pupils are recognised for going above and beyond, achieving where perhaps others might fail. Winning an achievement award might mean different things to different people - it may represent a personal triumph against adversity, it may recognise a young person who has pushed themselves out of their comfort zone, it may be the opportunity to recognise the outstanding efforts of a team player who always puts others first.

Our winners are publicly congratulated for their achievement with a framed certificate and badge in assembly, they are also invited to attend a special awards ceremony where they are congratulated in front of friends and family.
