Youngsters from 22 senior schools across the borough have received Jack Petchey awards in recognition of their achievements.

On Tuesday (November 22), 145 Achievement Award winners aged 11-25 received medallions to go with their framed certificate and a cheque for £250 each, after being nominated by peers and leaders for achievements such as working hard and selflessly helping others.

Winners included Favour Sulaiman, aged 16, from Kemnal Technology College, who has given up his time to mentor younger students; and Leo Nelson, aged 13, from Hayes School, who has championed his school’s ‘growth mindset’.

Eight adults were also celebrated with Leader Awards for demonstrating their outstanding abilities to encourage and motivate young people.

Mayor of Bromley Ian Payne, who opened the ceremony, commented: “What an excellent evening celebrating the achievement of Bromley young people. It makes me proud to be the mayor of such talent and achievement. “Well done to the Jack Petchey Foundation! Awesome!”
