Columbia Grange School

Little Steps, Big Aspirations For All

Headteacher’s Welcome


Hello, please accept my very warm welcome to Columbia Grange School.


I hope you find all the information you need on our website. Don't hesitate to get in touch by telephone or email- the contacts are available on this site. We also offer tours on a fairly regular basis, details can be provided by our office staff.

Our vibrant and welcoming school community is built on trust and relationships, where staff are incredibly committed to securing the best outcomes for our pupils- your children, the most valuable people in your lives.

We want to work towards securing those outcomes with our pupils being safe, happy and engaged. Every child who attends Columbia Grange School is known and understood. They are encouraged, supported and challenged to achieve their very best.

The work with our pupils both in and out of the classroom is underpinned by SCERTS- Social Communication; Emotional Regulation and Transactional Support. This is an exacting and involved process that is of great benefit to our pupils. We want you to know that we have an eye for detail and that we share regular updates with families on progress, on recent work and on fun activities through ClassDojo. 

We want our pupils to be happy and thrive on all achievements, individually and collectively, as well as being equipped to handle the ups and downs that life presents. We want to increasingly take valuable footsteps within our community with our pupils as we prepare them for the world after Columbia Grange to develop their abilities to contribute to our diverse society.
