Spiritual Life


The Palmer Catholic Academy, a voluntary aided academy for boys and girls from 11 to 18. Founded as Canon Palmer Catholic School in 1961 with 300 students, it has grown greatly in numbers and stature. The Academy provides an excellent education for all its students. Our commitment to outstanding academic standards is reflected in high achievement in public examinations. Indeed, The Palmer Catholic Academy can now pride itself on being one of the highest performing schools in the country as well as in the local area.

Each student’s spiritual and moral development is central to the work of the whole Academy. We promote those genuine Christian values which develop our young people into tolerant, respectful, industrious, successful and good citizens and provide the preparation for life in a modern, diverse and sometimes challenging society.

This is a modern school with traditional values. We strive to create a harmonious and caring ethos, embracing the cultural diversity of our school community of which I am
justifiably proud.
