St Columba's School is a coeducational independent day school for pupils aged 3–18, located in Kilmacolm near Glasgow.

The results obtained by our pupils are consistently among the highest pass rates and percentage As in the country. With national representation at sport, music, debating and public speaking, St Columba’s leads the way both in the classroom and beyond.

Our size is also our strength. With around 700 pupils, each child is known by name and recognised as an individual. Our beautiful countryside location is just twenty minutes from Glasgow.
