The Palmer Catholic Academy

Admissions and Prospectus

The first day when I came to The Palmer Catholic Academy the only thing I wanted to do was make friends.  I have made lots of them.  It is the best thing that's happened to me

We recognise that transferring to Secondary School is one of the most important stages of any child's life and our Transition team will work to ease the transition as much as possible.

Through our work with feeder Primary schools your son/daughter will probably be familiar with the academy. New students have often attended lessons here or have been taught by our specialist Sports and Science staff.   Extensive liaison between schools ensures that our Head of Year 7 and the Head of Learning Support are aware of the needs of all children coming into their care.  It is a duty they take very seriously.
