At Drumbeat School we are part of the Jack Petchey Award Scheme. Claire Tillotson is our co-ordinator.

What is it?

The Jack Petchey Vision and Mission

The Jack Petchey Foundation established 1999 (a registered charity and company limited by guarantee)

Our Vision:

Our vision is of a world where young people have high aspirations; the opportunity to develop their potential; the chance to be architects of their own future; to play a full part in society and to be valued and recognised for the positive things they achieve.

Our Mission:

To enable young people (aged 11 – 25 years in London, Essex & the Algarve area of Portugal), to achieve their potential by inspiring, investing in, developing and promoting activities that increase their personal, social, emotional and physical development.

Our Values:

The Jack Petchey Foundation draws on the ideology, vision and values of its Patron Jack Petchey CBE who epitomises the saying: “If you think you can, you can!”


For the academic year 2012 – 2013 our winners have been:

  • Scott Lynch,
  • Rabie Babiker
  • William Mukui
  • Cameron Smith Johnson
  • James Noulton
  • Caroline Cheng

We were all invited to an award ceremony at The Albany Theatre in Deptford where our students were presented with a medal from the Major of Lewisham.

As well as this winners receive a £200 cash prize which they spend with their class. This has included trips out in London, Go Cart racing and visits to the cinema.
