Sir Jack Petchey CBE founded the Jack Petchey Foundation in 1999 to recognise the positive contributions young people make to society and assist them in achieving their potential. The foundation supports programmes and projects that benefit young people aged 11-25 in London and Essex and have invested over £110 million in such schemes.
Jack Petchey's major programme, the Achievement Awards is a peer recognition scheme operating in throughout the region and Richmond Park Academy is part of that programme. Each school nominates a monthly winner, with each winner receiving £250 award money to benefit the school. Scroll down the page for the opportunity to nominate a student in the school.
The Foundation is also eager to help young people take advantage of opportunities, develop their full potential and play an active role in society. To do this they support a number of programmes ranging from sport to science. This includes the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge, the world’s largest public speaking competition for young people and Team Table Tennis competitions; both of which Richmond Park Academy students participate in.
