St Columba's School is an HMC coeducational independent day school for pupils aged 3–18, located in Kilmacolm, on the outskirts of Glasgow. As one of Scotland's highest achieving schools, the results obtained by our pupils are consistently among the highest pass rates and percentage grade As in the country. Our beautiful countryside location and excellent educational experience create a school environment which is challenging and vibrant.

Early Years - Nurturing a Love of Learning
Early Years feels like a 'home from home', where our 3 and 4 year olds can learn through play. Our highly qualified team ensures every child is happy, supported and nurtured.  As well as reading, writing and numeracy skills, children are taught PE, French, music and drama by specialist teachers. With an all-season play space and carefully maintained ‘Wild Woods’ children benefit from hands-on learning in a beautiful village setting.

Junior School - Inspiring Young Minds
In Junior School we offer a stimulating curriculum that creates confident, independent thinkers with a genuine love for learning. Philosophy, drama, music, art, enterprise, chess and golf are all part of our dynamic extra-curricular programme.
