Jack Petchey Achievement Award


Highbury Fields School is a member of the Jack Petchey Foundation. This means that each month pupils, teachers and support staff can nominate a student who they think has done something special, either in or outside of school.

In school, they may have improved attendance or punctuality. They may have also helped stop bullying, been friendly to their peers and behaved well in class.

Outside school they may have been kind or helpful in a particular session, been a regular carer for younger or older people or have done some charity work.

Selecting Our Winners

Awards are for individuals only, no group or joint awards can be made.

Students must be involved in nominating and selecting winners, but staff, parents, volunteers can also get involved!

Celebration Events

Once a year, schools and colleges are required to attend a prestigious borough- wide celebration event where winners receive a special medallion. Award winners, their families, friends and staff are invited to attend- it’s a great celebration!

Keep an eye out on our website for dates of future Celebration Events.

Spending the Money

The winner decides how the £250 is spent. The money must be used for the benefit of a group of young people and not an individual.
