Jack Petchey Foundation
The Jack Petchey Foundation's flagship programme is its Achievement Award scheme – 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 KHS we pride ourselves for taking part in this scheme and celebrate our students who take part.
Each award winner will receive a certificate, pin badge and a book from Sir Jack himself. They will also choose how to spend a £250 grant to benefit their school or organisation.
All award winners are invited to attend one of our fun ceremonies to be presented with a medallion in front of their families, friends and VIP’s.
Over 1600 schools and youth organisations run our scheme across London and Essex. The programme provides quality resources and funding to help organisations add a bit of sparkle to the great work they already do.
