Jack Petchey Award Scheme

Carew Academy is proud to be part of the Jack Petchey Award Scheme, which awards grants to programmes and projects that benefit young people. Jane from the Jack Petchey Foundation visited Carew Academy to see the impact of the Award on our young people. She commented on what “a pleasure” it was to come to the school and “the positive changes since my last visit were very noticeable. Ideas for spending our grants are excellent and the students are choosing varied and fun trips and projects.”
