Jack Petchey Achievement Awards at QPCS
Established in 1999, The Jack Petchey Foundation gives grants to programmes and projects that benefit young people aged 11-25. Since it has been established the Foundation has awarded grants totalling over Ł65million. The Achievement Award Scheme aims to enable schools, colleges and youth organisations to recognise, reward and celebrate the achievements of their young people. Jack Petchey wants young people to raise their aspirations, believe in themselves and make a contribution to their society.
Achievement Awards are designed to recognise a wide range of achievement. It is not just about being clever, or gifted, but about putting the effort in and doing your best.

2011/12 Award Ceremony
Each year the Jack Petchey Foundation recognises a number of students and staff within Brent Schools at a prestigious awards ceremony. On Wednesday 23rd January 2013, QPCS students and a colleague received their award from the Mayor and were recognised for their contribution to the life of our school community. Several students proudly took to the stage and were recognised for their achievements and Mr Hammond, who was voted by the students and staff, gained rightful recognition of his inspiring teaching, leadership and exceptional dedication. The ceremony rightly highlighted the amazing achievements of the students and staff across the Local Authority and I was immensely proud to see the large number of QPCS representatives featured. Well done to everyone.

2010/11 Award Ceremony
It was my absolute pleasure to attend the annual Jack Petchey Award Ceremony on Thursday 10th November at the Brent Town Hall.
The Jack Petchey awards are given to students and staff who have been recognised as making a significant contribution to the life of our school. The award winners are nominated by their peers on a monthly basis and one member of the school staff is nominated by all on an annual basis. The event is splendid with plenty of celebration and ‘razzmatazz’. Awards go to all Brent schools and I was particularly proud of our student winners and our staff winner, Ms Guiltenane, Finance Officer, for their recognition of outstanding contributions to our school community. Well done to all!
It was also great to see the QPCS Jazz Band performing at the event demonstrating musical excellence and a confident and professional public performance to the large audience.
