St. Columba's High School

Head Teacher

Welcome to the St. Columba's High School website.                                                             

I hope that this site will provide you with helpful information about the school.  It will give you some insight into the aims of St Columba's and how we try to turn those aims into practice for the benefit of all the students. 

St Columba's High School's greatest priority is to cooperate with you to provide a wide range of opportunities and experiences - educational, personal, emotional and spiritual - for your child.  Parents, of course, are the prime educators of their children and we invite you to allow us to help you in that task.  We share your values and wish to build on them in the school.  As a catholic school, we wish to build on the foundations you have laid and which have been extended so successfully in the primary school.   That means extending and developing not only the learning experiences of your child, but also the growth of his/her faith.

St Columba's is our school.  Together we can make it a valuable experience for each of our pupils.  Working together - pupils, parents, teachers, parishes and the wider community - we really can provide an education which is best for your child.

I invite you to work with me and the whole school community in building an environment where we can celebrate achievement for your child, for your family and for St. Columba's High School.

You can now keep in contact with other parents through our newly created Facebook page (link given to the right of this page). This has been created by, and is maintained by parents. Please visit the Facebook page and find out more about what is going on in the school. 

I hope that you enjoy your visit to the site.
