St Columba’s is a Catholic school with Christ’s teachings of love, peace and justice at the heart of all we do

House groups


Each child in our school is a part of a house team. We have four house teams:


  • St. Matthew

  • St. Mark

  • St. Luke

  • St. John


    Each team is assigned a teacher as head of house and two house captains from Year 6. Their role involves representing their house in collecting trophies and being leading examples for their team.



Children receive house points for lots of different things like good behaviour, using their manners, being polite and helpful, producing excellent work, contributing to class discussions and being positive role models around school. Special certificates are awarded to pupils who achieve 100, 200 or 300 house points in a school year.


When a child receives a house point, they record it in their classrooms. Each week, a team of Year 6 pupils count the house points and the results are announced in Gifts from God Assembly each Friday. Ribbons in the colours of the winning team are tied around the trophy and the trophy is then placed in the entrance on display for the rest of the week.
