    • Dream

      We aim to inspire our pupils to dream big and aspire to make their dreams a reality. We will provide our pupils with many opportunities to experience extraordinary things, find positive role models and discover what they want to achieve in their lives now, and in the future.

    • Believe

      At St. Columba’s, we believe in ourselves and each other. Through strong relationships and trust, we support our pupils in believing they can achieve their goals. A Christian faith underpins our school values and pupils are reminded that God believes in them and gives them strength.

    • Strive

      We aim to teach pupils that success requires hard work and dedication. We support our pupils in making progress by helping them to set targets and take the steps they need to take. We believe that everyone can succeed at something, at some level and we value these differences.

    • Succeed

      As an inclusive school, we value everyone’s achievements. We celebrate and reward the hard work and success of others. We are clear about what success means and how it can be realised. Everyone strives to be the best they can be and supports each other to achieve this.

  • “We Care, We Share, We Learn Together”


    At St. Columba’s our mission is to work as a team to provide the highest quality learning and teaching in a happy, safe and secure environment in which our pupils are at the heart of all we do. We believe that every child entrusted in our care is a unique individual.
    We strive to promote an inclusive and loving ethos in which our pupils are cherished and respected.

    We create an atmosphere which is conducive to learning and which seeks to promote the values, beliefs and practices of our Catholic faith. We hope that our children in turn become ambassadors for their community and understand the very positive impact that they can have globally.

    Through their learning experiences in St. Columba’s our children are prepared to meet the opportunities and challenges that they may face in a rapidly changing world. We encourage our children to develop a love of learning and experience enjoyment in their journey of holistic development as they strive to fulfil their potential and be the best that they can be.
