Carew Academy is proud to be part of the Jack Petchey Award Scheme: which awards grants to programmes and projects that benefit young people.
It is an excellent reward and recognition scheme for schools and colleges to help celebrate the achievements of young people.
The Achievement Award scheme enables schools to recognise the effort, endeavour and achievement of young people in a practical and positive way.
It provides useful additional funds for the school and the grants have enabled students to fund varied fun trips and projects here at Carew.
The main aim is to inspire and motivate young people to achieve and be whatever they want to be: ‘If I think I can, I can’. To problem solve and make decisions that affect them.
