Jack Petchey Award
The Achievement Awards are primarily about recognising those who put in the effort and do their best.
Sir Jack Petchey CBE
The Green School for Girls participates in the Gold Level Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme, which is a reward and recognition scheme for schools to help celebrate the achievements of students and staff. Jack Petchey Achievement Award winners are young people who have gone above and beyond to achieve – perhaps when others thought they might fail.
A student is nominated every month at TGSG by their peers for their hard work and efforts. A student can qualify for an award in a variety of ways for example overcoming adversity, contributing to the life of the school, personal and/or academic achievement or for their contribution to the local community. Each winner receives a grant of £250 to spend to benefit the school and organisation. Previous winners have helped fund extra-curricular trips, curriculum resources, form group trips and much more. As part of their achievement award they will join a Jack Petchey Committee with like-minded students to inspire the rest of the school.
At TGSG, we are proud to be part of such an exceptional scheme that values the achievements and challenges that our students are presented with throughout school and young adult life. Therefore, we would like to share the achievement of our students and staff with you.
