The Jack Petchey Awards being presented at the Queen’s Theatre highlight the achievements of some very special students and leaders.

More than 1,600 schools, colleges and youth organisations across London and Essex take part in the awards scheme – and on February 23 and 24, it will be Havering’s turn.

The scheme aims to enable schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people as well as receive additional funding.

“We do it because we want to help young people raise their aspirations, believe in themselves and make a contribution to their society” said Sir Jack Petchey CBE.
