St Columba's Catholic Boys' School

Open Day 2021 Information

We are really very disappointed to cancel our forthcoming Open Day on Saturday 2 October. We waited much longer than many schools to take this step because we are so proud of our school and more importantly, our students. But, over the past ten days, we have seen a very noticeable rise in the number of confirmed Covid cases. Because our overriding concern is always for the safety of our students and staff we have reluctantly come to the view that it would be exposing them a very real but wholly avoidable risk to continue with our Open Day.


However, our current plans are to continue with our scheduled Open Mornings. These visits will enable you to have a guided walk around the school. Please be aware you will not be able to enter individual classrooms. The guided walks will start at 9:30am for a maximum of one hour to 10:30am on the following dates:


o Tuesday 5 October 2021

o Wednesday 6 October 2021

o Thursday 7 October 2021

o Tuesday 12 October 2021

o Wednesday 13 October 2021

o Thursday 14 October 2021


We hope you appreciate that, in the current circumstances:

1. We are having to limit the number of visitors we have in our school.

2. We are restricting visitors to one adult and one child per application.

3. We will be operating a strict booking policy.

4. To reserve a place at one of the Open Mornings, please email giving your name, your son’s name, your son’s current school and which date you would like. Please list your preferred dates, in order of preference and we will respond to you asap.

We would appreciate it if visitors wore a face covering and use the hand sanitiser that will be available at the school entrance.

We look forward to seeing you!
