Jack Petchey Award trip to Brentford v Fulham

By Fiona Wilkins - May 28th, 2024 | Posted in Article

One of our year 9 students was chosen for the Jack Petchey award. He decided he would use his winnings to go and watch a Premier League football match.

We managed to get tickets for Brentford v Fulham.  Everyone met at the school and we went by minibus to the ground. Everyone was hungry so before the match we went to Burger King.

We had front row seats and expected to find ourselves on Match of the Day that night. However, the Match ended 0-0 so highlights were few and far between!

It was a wonderful experience to go to what was a first ever Premier League football match for the students and some will be Brentford supporters for life now.
