Jack Petchey Foundation

The Jack Petchey Foundation was set up by Sir Jack Petchey CBE to inspire and motivate young people across London and Essex to do their best and reach their full potential.

Forest Hill School participates in the Jack Petchey Foundation’s flagship programme – the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme. It is a reward and recognition initiative which enables schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of young people and receive additional funding.

Each academic year, students are nominated for awards by teachers and their peers who feel that they have gone above and beyond to achieve.

Each winner receives a framed certificate, a pin badge, a boxed medallion and £250 to spend on a project of their choice which will benefit a group of young people.

The Awards Presentation evening is a prestigious event, usually held at the Broadway Theatre in Catford and attended by recipients and their parents, and senior leaders of the associated schools. Medals and certificates are presented by the Mayor of Lewisham.
