What the school offers its staff

About The Palmer Catholic Academy

The Palmer Catholic Academy is a place where the Catholic faith is fostered and developed in the context of respect for each individual's freedom and dignity. Everyone is treated with respect, dignity and equality, regardless of sex, race or ability. The Academy works positively and tirelessly to counter the inequalities children may face outside school. We believe in the importance of building up the self-image and aspirations of all. Great importance is placed in developing a sense of community in the school as a whole and awareness in each student that they are cared for within the community. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the students permeates the whole curriculum. Our aim is to provide a happy and secure learning environment, giving all our students the opportunity to develop spiritually, socially and succeed academically. We believe that education is wider than simple academic subjects and strive to provide a broad and balanced education. Nonetheless, the central importance of academic success is fully realised. We follow the example of our founder, Canon Patrick Palmer - to do all things to the Glory of God and the Service of all.

GCSE success continued in 2023 with 87% of students achieving 4+ in English, 86% 4+ in Maths and a Progress 8 score of +0.72, Disadvantaged Students +0.80. We are a 'well above average' provider.
