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



Hi, my name is Hayley Bradbury, I am married to Simon and we live in Bournville with our fantastic three children. Nieve and Ava are at a School within the Academy and Finn is a toddler at a local pre school, our Faith is incredibly important to us and we are very active members of our Parish and our wider community.


Growing up, my Sister, Cousins and I all attended St Columba and we have incredibly warm memories of our time there and attending mass at Our Lady’s of Perpetual Succour, so I was very honoured to be asked to return to the school as a Foundation Governor.  I went to St Thomas Aquinas Secondary School and then onto Birmingham University for my undergraduate degree and Birmingham City University for my Post Graduate.


In my professional life, I am a Senior Project Manager currently working on major construction and infrastructure railway projects across the UK. Using my project management experience, I am a highly motivated problem solver fully adept at being able to identify issues early and possessing the tools to correct them quickly. 


I have a natural drive to improve services, this, combined with my Faith and my own personal history with St Columba means that I can bring a valuable set of skills to the School.  I work hard and I will work hard to support this fantastic school
