Jack Petchey Award Winners

Below are our worthy winners of Jack Petchey Awards:

September 2018

Nicole R Y11 - She does work with her Police Cadets to ensure our high streets are safe for young people. An example is her volunteering to be a Test Purchaser – she attempts to buy alcohol and cigarettes to see if shops are asking for ID from young people.

October 2018

George P Y7 - He has put tremendous work into helping establish a fabulous display during our Open Evening and also accepting wider responsibilities in the classroom on a daily basis.

November 2018

Andrew I Y13 - Competes in Karate and has achieved some phenomenal accolades in the short time he has been competing. Andrew who has a Black Belt in Karate won his first European Championship at just 12 years old but setting his sights high, Andrew then went on to win two more European Championships and four World Championships! Andrew’s Karate has taken him to numerous countries whereby he competes not only in his age group but also in 18+ and the 18-21 age group. He most recently won the Bristol Open in the 16+ category taking home two Gold Medals and a Trophy. His biggest achievement to date is winning ‘Best of the Best Male’ in the Polish Open which took place in Poland in 2017. It’s safe to say Andrew will be in need of a bigger trophy cabinet with his collection still growing.

January 2019

Brandon S Y7 -  Awarded for his outstanding contribution to our Red Box appeal at Christmas.  His contributions helped less fortunate families in our community at Christmas.

February 2019

Hiren competes in taekwondo and has reached astronomical heights for such a young man.

Hiren is a 3rd Dan Black Belt in taekwondo and has been competing internationally since 2013 winning Bronze in Stuttgart at the German open. Since then he has also picked up four bronze medals at the national championships as well as representing his country at the European championships in 2015 and 2017. In 2015 at the German open in Dresden he was awarded the best player in Britain.

To top off all his achievements Hiren achieved a gold and two bronze medals at the commonwealth games. Hiren continues to excel at the sport and pushes himself to stay competitive at the highest international level.  

Hiran   JP March 2019

April 2019

Lynelle S, Y9 - spearheaded the organisation for Mr Adu-Larbi’s Tribute. She showed great leadership and organisation in a time where a lot of the academy students needed it. She also used her initiative to raise money for Mr Adu-Larbi’s family which again displays resilience and great resourcefulness. Lynelle also has a voice that students listen to and respect, I’ve witnessed on many occasions her talk down other students from making the wrong decisions and being the voice of reason amongst her peers.

May 2019

Amelia H, Y7 is an outstanding student during lessons, actively participates in several clubs both in the Acadmey and also outside the Academy. She volunteers during her free time. Most recently she participated in the students' climate change protest held here in London.

June 2019

Gownyan - Y8 - arrived at the Academy in January 2018 speaking English at a very basic level.  His first language is Tamil and his second is Italian.  He then began  to learn a third language, English, and within 18 months became a competent speaker and is able to write fluently with little support.  Having received low grades in his first assessment cycle due his low level of English, he decided, with determination, that by the end of the Summer Term 2019 he would exceed his target.  He achieved this by reading a variety of English books and completing accompanying tasks; he attended extra English tuition during registration periods and revised relentlessly using on-line resources and by gathering extra resources from teachers.  He sought help from wherever he could; he is the epitome of a resilient, resourceful learner who sets himself very high personal targets and achieves them.
