The Palmer Catholic Academy

Catholic Schools' Citizenship Awards

Congratulations to our two Year 11 students, Loretta and Lucas, who were awarded the Catholic Schools' Citizenship Award at Brentwood Cathedral.

Loretta and Lucas have provided excellent support to their peers in the stressful times of Year 11.  They have contributed to the wider academy community by giving time and support inside and outside the academy.


Young Catholics from across the diocese came together for the annual Citizenship Awards ceremony at Brentwood Cathedral. Nominated by their schools for their selfless service of others, these young citizens received their award from Bishop Alan Williams.

The event has been running since 2002, when it was inaugurated by Lord Alton, a former pupil of the diocese and Professor of Citizenship at Liverpool John Moore University. It has been supported by Brentwood Religious Education Service as a way of responding to the Government’s requirements on citizenship.
