The school was opened by the then prime Minister Edward Heath on 7 May 1973. The lower and upper sections of the school were amalgamated on the present site in June 1990 in an extended building. A £5 million new build which included a new teaching block, new sports hall, and refurbished theatre was opened in 2005.
The school converted to academy status in September 2012, and was previously under the direct control of Bexley London Borough Council. The school continues to coordinate with Bexley London Borough Council for admissions.
St Columba's are close partners with their sister school, St Catherine's Catholic School for Girls.
