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 in September with the removal of the staggered starts and finishes. Parents will have the opportunity to once again come into school however as we are all aware, things can change quickly and we will always keep parents informed about any changes.
We hope you enjoy looking at our website and finding out a little more about our school. We look forward to welcoming parents and 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.
