Student have been rewarded for their special achievements and contributions to the community.
More than 100 prizes were handed out at the Jack Petchey Achievement Awards, which took place at Harrow Arts Centre, in Uxbridge Road, last Thursday.
A total of 13 schools and colleges in the borough were recognised by charity for their outstanding ability to motivate and encourage young people.
And nine staff were also presented with Leader Awards for their contribution to the schools.
Deputy head at Whitmore High School, Rose Brougham, was presented with an award after being nominated by staff.
She said: "It was unexpected, but it was extremely fulfilling to be recognised. It was a lovely evening and the performances were first class.
"We are so pleased to be involved in such a great charity."
The Mayor of Harrow Councillor John Nickolay presented the student winners with a medallion and certificate as well as s300 for their school.
Teachers were also presented with a medallion and s1,000 to be spent on their school to provide new equipment for a variety of departments.
Pupils at Bentley Wood High School, in Bridges Road, Harrow, received nine awards. One of the teachers, Georgie Garde, was presented with a leader award for her work in health and social care.
John Jowers, assistant head at the school, said: "It values the contribution that young people make, so often they do not get all the praise they deserve.
"With the money that is put to the schools by Jack Petchey the young people can choose how it is spent, which is wonderful for them."
The evening featured performances from The Harrow Youth Gospel Choir and young singers from Canons High School, the Canons R&B Group, who performed a song they had written themselves.
The award scheme ceremony is now in its second year and s182,000 has been donated by the foundation to schools, clubs and organisations in Harrow since 2005.
Over the past year a young person, teacher or parent nominated a student each month for a special award, which was presented at the evening ceremony last week.
The Jack Petchey Foundation, based in Ilford, aims to help develop the potential in young people aged 11-25 in London and Essex.
