The Jamie Payne-Ross Award


The Jamie Payne-Ross Award is presented annually at St. Mary's each summer in memory of Jamie Payne-Ross who died in a tragic accident in December 1993.

The Award is for outstanding achievement and excellence in sport for a Year 8 pupil (12–13 years old) and was presented to the school by Jamie’s mother Colleen and elder brother Adam.  Previous presenters of the award include Sir Trevor Brooking, Matthew Lewis, Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, Eddie Gray, Aidan White, Callum Hall and the Kaiser Chiefs.


“It is a great honour to be asked to present the Jamie Payne-Ross Award. Everyone at St. Mary’s knows about this award and indeed Jamie. It is a very special occasion which demonstrates the wonderful sense of community at St. Mary’s.”
— Matthew Lewis
