On Thursday 27th April staff and students from Young People's Academy attended the annual Jack Petchey Awards ceremony at The Beck Theatre, Hayes. The evening was an opportunity to see performances of students from other schools as well as a chance to meet the Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor John Hensley.

Tony and Connor were there to receive their awards, which they had been nominated for by staff and students. Miss Watson was also there to collect her Outstanding Leader Award.

Tony who was nervous about going on the stage in front of all those people said "I feel really proud and happy that I went up there and received my award. It was a really enjoyable evening!"

Miss Watson said "it was a great feeling to receive an award that I had been voted for by the students and other staff, I feel so honoured. It was brilliant to see all the achievements being celebrated from so many talented young people from all over the Borough."
