Welcome to St Columba's Catholic Primary School
My name is Mrs Rebecca Nash and I am Executive Principal of St Columba's and St Brigid's Catholic primary schools. I am also an Ofsted inspector and a Section 48 inspector for the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
My name is Mrs Linda Southerton and I am the Head of School at St Columba's.
St Columba's is part of the Lumen Christi Multi Academy Company (MAC) with St Brigid's, St Joseph's, St James', St John Fisher , St Thomas Aquinas, St Thomas More and St Paul's. As a MAC we are all committed to developing Catholic education in our schools.
We are a Catholic school with Christ’s teachings of love, peace and justice at the heart of all we do.
We believe we have a true family feel and our staff continually strive to ensure our pupils show the teachings of Jesus in the way they live their lives. St Columba's is a good school with brilliant staff, fantastic children, supportive parents and School Standards Committee Representatives. We are a happy school with a great team of dedicated staff who are here to ensure your child reaches their full potential.
As a Catholic school we strive for the best- this is what your child deserves. As parents we know how important it is to trust your child's school. At St Columba's you can rest assured that your child is in a happy, safe, caring, nurturing, and stimulating environment
We strive for excellence in all teaching and to foster an enjoyment of learning.
The global pandemic has of course brought challenges but we are proud of how we have responded and the provision we had in place during lockdown. We are delighted to be fully open again however there are still limitations on what we can and cannot do. For the moment we are unable to allow parents into school but please do not shy away from getting in touch with us. We will only be too happy to speak to you over the phone or invite you in for a pre arranged meeting.
We hope you enjoy looking at our website and finding out a little more about our school. We look forward to the day when we can safely welcome visitors in through our doors, show you our wonderful school, pupils and staff as well as being able to offer you a cuppa and a chat.
