Principal's Welcome

Welcome from Mrs Flynn


Dear Pupils, Parents and Guardians,


Welcome to St. Columbanus College.

It is an honour to be beginning my journey with the College’s new Year 8 pupils, I am excited to start our new adventure together. I am also delighted to continue with all the familiar faces of our pupils and we will support each other through our time together at the College.

As soon as you begin your life at St. Columbanus' College, the staff and I will work to ensure that each of you achieves success in an atmosphere which is happy, supportive and underpinned by Christian values. As a Catholic Faith based College, which promotes the inclusion of all faiths, all that we do is informed and framed by the values and principles of the gospel.

 Those who visit our College are welcomed into an atmosphere which is calm, industrious and productive. High expectations are evident for each young person and everyone is valued, motivated, challenged and supported in working towards achieving their full potential.

 Our pupils, both past and present are the College’s best advocates. They will assure you that our College is a happy, safe and secure school where everyone is valued, where expectations are high and where every child can and does achieve. Our core business is learning. This is framed within a system of Pastoral Care which is outstanding, always emphasising the development of high self-esteem and self-belief in our pupils.

 As parents and guardians I realise you are the prime educators and I want to nurture the already strong partnership between home and College. These positive and productive relationships are central to how we operate as a school and provide a consistent focus on ensuring the needs of each child are met.

I hope you will explore and enjoy our website.

Kind Regards

Maria Flynn
