Jack Petchey Foundation
Jack Petchey is one of the UK's most successful businessmen. Born in East London in July 1925, he came from a working class background with very few advantages. From an early age he showed the entrepreneurial skills that have aided his success.
In 1999 he set up the Jack Petchey Foundation as he wanted to give opportunities to young people in London. Since then he has donated over £118million to schools, clubs and projects that benefit young people in London and Essex.
At Moulsham High School, we run the Gold Achievement Award, which entitles us to 9 winners a year, each receiving £250. The winner has the opportunity to spend his/her award anywhere he/she chooses within the school. Monthly nominations can be made by any student or member of staff. The nominations are considered by a student committee, composed of a representative from each year group. The winner is presented with a framed certificate and a Jack Petchey badge, and his/her achievement is celebrated in assembly or Form. Once a year the winners and their families are invited to a celebration evening at the Civic Theatre, Chelmsford, where all the winners from the district receive a Jack Petchey Medallion.
Nominations are chosen from the following categories and allow the school community to recognise effort, endeavour and achievement.
