Welcome from Mr Perry

In St Columbanus’ College the things I like the most are all the friendly

Spanish and English. I have made so many friends in St Columbanus in
a very short time. I love it!

Achieving success in a happy and hardworking atmosphere
where each individual matures in a supportive Christian
Dear Pupils and Parents,
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to St Columbanus’ College.
In order to help you make the important decisions in relation to the next phase of your education, the information
provided within this Prospectus should give you an understanding of our College, our successes and what we have to
offer our young people.
From the day pupils begin their lives in St. Columbanus’ College, we work to ensure that each child 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,
among which, self-respect, mutual respect, honesty, integrity and service to others are to the fore.
Those who visit our College find an atmosphere which is calm, industrious and productive. High expectations are evident
for each young person and everyone is valued, stimulated, challenged and supported in working towards achieving their
full potential. Every member of our College community is encouraged at all times to strive for excellence.
Our best advocates and exponents are our pupils, both past and present. They will assure you that our College is a happy,
safe, secure and productive 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.
The St.Columbanus’ community acknowledges parents/guardians as the prime educators of their children and we
welcome and encourage a constructive 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.
Our high quality Learning and Teaching, our Pastoral Care, our sense of community and belonging and the expertise
of staff in identifying and developing each child’s talents, ensures that St. Columbanus’ College enjoys a very positive
reputation within ‘education’ and the community in general. As we continue to grow as a College in terms of size and
status, we strive to ensure that we never lose sight of the needs of the individual child. We believe the potential for every
child in our care is unlimited. This can be seen in our excellent examination results at GCSE, A-Level and in our pupils
work in the community.
I am sure you will be encouraged by what you may already know about our College, by what you will learn from this
Prospectus and what you will experience when you visit us. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming many of you
to the St. Columbanus’ College community in the future.

Welcome from the Board of Governors
St. Columbanus College is proud of its rich heritage, present and bright future.
It seeks to develop each pupil to achieve their full potential in a welcoming

Our College is one of the best examples of modern education in Northern Ireland. Independent international research

for each other and towards our society.
We have consistently improved educational and academic outcomes to levels well beyond national averages, and our
College Development Plan demonstrates our commitment to further success.

citizenship and based upon mutual respect. I look forward to you joining the College Community.

St Columbanus is the patron saint of our College. From an early age his
mission was to follow the teachings of Jesus and to bring this message
to others. He spent time in Fermanagh, Bangor, France and Italy. Our
College motto “Lex Dei in Corde Meo” means the “Law of God is in my
Heart’ Daily in our College and home lives we are asked to show God’s
love to others through our words and actions.
St Columbanus’ College is a well-established and successful coeducational
Catholic College, which serves Bangor, Groomsport,
Donaghadee, Holywood, Newtownards and Comber. The foundation
stone for St Columbanus’ Secondary Intermediate School, as it was
formerly known, was laid by Bishop Daniel Mageean on the Feast of the
Assumption, 15th August 1959.
The College was built to serve the parishes of Bangor, Holywood and
Newtownards and opened within a week of the feast of St Columbanus
on 29th November 1960. A wide curriculum was offered with an
emphasis on the teaching of vocational and technical skills. Many students
left at the age of fifteen to take up employment while a small CSE
class remained to study for external examinations. The late 1960s and
early 1970s saw a significant growth in enrolment, which required a
major extension to the original building. In the modern era the College
continues to go from strength to strength evolving to best meet the
needs of our young people.
In the last twenty years the College’s intake has changed significantly.
In addition to students from our maintained schools we welcome
students from many controlled schools in North Down. We are proud
that our school attracts people of all religious denominations and is a
community where diverse beliefs and cultures fuse together to form a
vibrant College where the academic, pastoral and spiritual growth of our
students are valued equally. We are pleased that our College is a place
where we can make a positive contribution to the spiritual development
of each student. Prayer plays a central part in College life.

Assessment & Reporting
Assessment at Key Stage 3
Teachers carry out assessment activities to establish how well pupils have understood work undertaken in class.
Assessments provide data in relation to student attainment and information to help the teacher plan the next stage of an
individual’s progress. They also provide an essential tool in helping evaluate and review work, so that plans can be adjusted
for the next year.
The College operates a very successful Continuous Assessment programme. The results from the Continuous
Assessments are analysed by teachers/departments and used to assist students in target setting.
The College continues to implement the CCEA assessment arrangements for the Cross Curricular skills of Using
Maths, Using ICT and Communication. All pupils in Year 10 will receive a Level of Progression based on their ability
to demonstrate a set of core skills in these areas. The Levels of Progression will provide clear information to teachers,
parents and students themselves on the progress being made in developing literacy, ICT and numeracy skills.
Assessment at Key Stage 4: External Examinations
Students study for a range of qualifications in years 11 and 12. These examinations are offered by various exam boards
CCEA, OCR, AQE and Edexcel. Students can when possible, access 8 or 9 GCSE qualifications (or equivalent) in total.
Assessment at Post 16
All Sixth Form students have access to a wide range of AS and A2 courses: some pupils study in collaboration with our
local partner schools in the North Down and Ards Learning Community.
Parents receive a written report on student progress once per year. This report will contain a written comment, a grade
or a percentage based on assessments carried out, along with information on attendance and punctuality.
Parents have access to a Parent Consultation Meeting (at notified times and dates), with subject teachers for each year
