The Basildon Academies


Jack Petchey Foundation Celebration Evening

Basildon Academies students and staff have recently been honoured by the Jack Petchey Foundation in recognition of their outstanding achievements. Members of both of our Academies were invited to the Towngate Theatre along with representatives from local schools. The prestigious Jack Petchey Awards were presented to our deserving winners by the Mayor of Basildon. During the evening of celebration, guests were treated to live music and dance by performers from local clubs.

The scheme is a reward and recognition initiative which enables schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people as well as receive valuable additional funding. Over the course of the school year, students are nominated for the award in recognition of either a major achievement, notable progress, or overcoming difficulty. Teaching and Support Staff are nominated for their outstanding leadership.
