The Palmer Catholic Academy

Head Girl Welcome 

My name is Veronica McKenzie-Burns and I joined the academy in Year 7. It is an honour, six years later, to be  the head girl of a diverse, united and loving community which is like a family to me

During my time at the academy, I have developed into a resilient and confident person who recognises the importance of challenging yourself through the countless opportunities available. My involvement in charity work with St Vincent de Paul Society has allowed me to give back to the community and develop my spirituality alongside my peers. 

I am currently studying A Levels in English Literature, Philosophy and Ethics and Sociology which means my hands are always aching from writing essays! I would like to continue my study of Philosophy next year at university in the hope of going into teaching as a career.

I am privileged to finish my journey at the academy with such a position in which I aim to make this year as enjoyable and fulfilled as possible, especially during these unprecedented times.
