Dear Year 10 parents / Carers

Over the coming week, Year 10 pupils are being asked to consider their GCSE subject choices.  Subject teachers and careers teachers will be speaking with them, giving them information and advice about this process.

Please click here to access the booklet ‘Choosing your GCSEs’ to support you and your son with this decision. 


Your son has been given a blue Subject Choice Form – please complete this, sign it and return to the Form Tutor by Wednesday 9th December.  There will be an opportunity to make final subject choice decisions in the Spring.


The St Columb's College Christmas 'Ticketless' Draw 2020 is now live - see attached poster. There are some great prizes this year.

Parents/guardians/carers/family friends and relatives can purchase a lines(s) in one of two ways:

(i) Via their son's ParentPay account. The account is called, 'Christmas Draw 2020'. (You will have to purchase a minimum of five lines).






(ii) By giving your son(s) the money to purchase a line(s) from the Student Council Representative in his Form Class.

Each line purchased will be designated a specific number and on Friday 18th December 2020 we will hold a lottery to determine the winners.



Good Luck!!!

St. Columb's College is UNITED AGAINST BULLYING and supports Anti-Bullying Week (Monday 16th November - Friday 20th November 2020).

Pupils will be provided with resources in Form Classes to highlight this important issue. Some pupils will also take part in competitions in Art and English to create posters and poems about the impact of bullying and to encourage pro-social behaviours.

We have posted a banner at the front of our school endorsing our support for Anti-Bullying Week.

Finally, all pupils and staff will participate in an ODD SOCK DAY this Friday 20th November 2020.
