The Jack Petchey Foundation

Addey and Stanhope School is proud to be involved with the Jack Petchey Foundation.  For many years we have participated in the Speak Out Challenge which is the world’s largest public speaking competition for young people.

Since September 2015 we have also been part of the Achievement Awards Scheme and are now Gold Level members which means that 9 of our students will be given a Jack Petchey Achievement Award over the course of year.  When they receive the award the students are publicly acknowledged for it by receiving their certificates and badges in assembly and also getting “shout outs” in student briefing.  Each award winner is then given a £250 grant from the Jack Petchey Foundation to spend on something that benefits the school.  In addition to the Achievement Awards we are now also able to nominate a member of staff for a Leader Award. 

All of the Achievement Award winners are young people who have gone above and beyond in their various ways and it is wonderful that the Jack Petchey Foundation has enabled us to celebrate their success in the way we have.

“The Achievement Awards are primarily about recognising those who put in the effort and do their best.”

Sir Jack Petchey CBE
