The Palmer Catholic Academy

Head Girl Welcome 

My name is Loretta Charles-Creegan and being head girl of an academy that has the spirit of family and Christian community at the forefront of everything it does, is a privilege.

I remember how nervous I was starting here in Year 7, feeling very young and small coming from primary school.  That feeling passed quickly and I have enjoyed attending the academy, and the people here have helped me grow into the young adult I am today.  Studying for exams can be a challenge but being in such a supportive environment encourages you to strive to do your best.  From creating lasting bonds with students and teachers, to realising my own potential and being determined to work hard, I have loved my time here.

Staff supported me whilst I was studying for GCSEs and now I am in my final year and studying A Levels, this support has continued.

I enjoy interacting with students of all ages and I can’t wait to see what this academic year brings in terms of meeting new people and approaching new opportunities.  The academy has given me the opportunity to be involved in projects in particular raising money for Haven House children’s hospice and setting up the gospel choir.

I am looking forward to using my experiences here as I progress on to university and all that has to offer.
