We are honoured to be associated and work closely with the Jack Petchey Foundation. We are currently running the Gold Achievement Award as well as the ‘Speak Out Challenge’.
The Achievement Award allows the school to present 3 awards per term. Our students and staff are all involved in the nominating process as well as selecting the winners for each month.
Each winner receives a certificate, pin badge, notes from Sir Jack Petchey CBE and their congratulations letter with Achievers Card. These are presented during assemblies and photographs are displayed around the Academy, on the website and in the Ramsey Voice, the Academy newsletter.
The winner also gets the opportunity to decide (in consultation with the Academy staff) how their £250 grant will be spent in order to make the most impact for our students.
The winners also have the opportunity to attend the Annual Schools event in order to collect their Achievement Award medallion.
We feel these Awards are extremely special as students are nominated by their peers as well as Academy staff. Winners are extremely proud of gaining the Award and we look forward to continuing our celebration of students who volunteer, commit, support and go that extra mile.
