The Palmer Catholic Academy

Head Boy Welcome

My name is Uche Egbon and I am Head Boy at The Palmer Catholic Academy.   I have been at the academy since Year Seven and it’s remarkable how much can happen in those years.  


Starting the academy you may be nervous as you would be for any new experience, it’s completely normal. Although here at the academy, you are quickly able to make new friends and you are welcomed by great teachers who will support you in whatever you do whether it be sport or academic related.

I especially enjoy my science classes because there are numerous practical opportunities and teachers with a great understanding always prepared to help if I am struggling. This was certainly a big part of what helped me achieve my GCSE and AS results. Additionally, the school helped reveal my love for sport being involved in the football and athletics teams.  It is now my last year at the academy and I know my experiences here have prepared me for life after Sixth Form.  I am very excited to see what the next stage may entail.
