Spiritual Life


The Palmer Catholic Academy is a voluntary aided co-educational Academy for students aged 11 to 18. Founded in 1961 by Canon Patrick Palmer as Canon Palmer Catholic School with the aim of serving the Catholic community in Ilford, the Academy has grown in numbers and stature.  In 1961 the school educated 300 students as opposed to 1,200 today.

At The Palmer Catholic Academy, we are committed to achieving a holistic education for the students that we serve recognising the individual talents, abilities and paths of all of our students. All that we do is permeated by Christ’s example, values and teachings. In our diverse community, we welcome those who may not share our faith, but subscribe to our values.

We have high expectations of all of our students for which we do not apologise. The demands of the 21st century mean that as well as building students’ character, we have a responsibility to ensure that they also enjoy an excellent education. Our students are expected to work hard, develop resilience and be prepared to listen to advice to improve. In addition, we have very strong academic and pastoral support systems to help students with their studies and work closely with parents and students to ensure the best outcome for each individual.  

We are ambitious for our students and have aspirations that they will be the future leaders who will make a positive contribution to their local communities and beyond.
