Jack Petchey

The Jack Petchey Foundation was set up to inspire and motivate young people aged 11 – 19 across London and Essex.  Clarendon School participates in the Jack Petchey Award Scheme, which recognises and rewards the achievements of our students.  Clarendon students can be nominated by their peers, staff members, parents and friends of the school for something they have worked exceptionally hard at or an achievement that has had a positive impact on their community.

The student body of the school votes to decide on six awards each year.  Jack Petchey winners each receive a £250 prize, which they can choose to spend on a resource for the school community or maybe a reward trip to enjoy with their class. Winners’ achievements are celebrated each year at a public award ceremony together with parents and other local schools at which medals are presented.

Our last six Jack Petchey Award Winners:

Cheyenne made outstanding personal progress on the Outward Bound course at the start of Year 11.  She was a natural leader, showing a new caring and supportive side, especially with those who needed help the most.

As part of Clarendon's anti-bullying week focusing on tolerance, Harry was voted by all of the students as being the person who regularly shows the most kindness and tolerance to everyone in the school.

Jacob has risen to the responsibilities posed to him in KS4 and has demonstrated a new found confidence.  He is constantly trying to progress in everything he does no matter how big or small. Jacob has been helpful to others, shown perseverance through difficult times, become an independent traveller and is always positive about his work.

Rachel started Year 11 with tremendous courage. She has overcome health setbacks as well as the lockdown to shine as an example of resilience and determination to us all.  She is now confident and happy to train staff in how to help her manage her medical condition and has made a lot of members of Clarendon staff extremely proud of her. She always tries her hardest with her work no matter how she is feeling.

Jake has grown in confidence since he joined us just over a year ago.  He has found his own way to be quiet, kind and friendly to everyone. He works very hard and has taken his move into KS4 seriously with dedication and hard work.

Luke is considered an excellent role model by our students.  He has been voted on to the student council by his class for a number of years, he is able to speak up well for others, often bringing issues forward to staff.  Luke is a hard working student who expects high standards from himself and is always willing to help others do the same.
