St Columba's offers an outstanding educational experience in an environment where every child is recognised as an individual. Boasting a wide variety of co-curricular opportunities, our pupils can try something new whenever they wish and will associate with children of other ages, races, religions and backgrounds. It is for these reasons that we are consistently ranked within the top independent schools in Scotland and that St Columba’s is renowned for its academic excellence.
St Columba’s School leads the way both in the classroom and beyond allowing Columban children to grow and flourish as well-balanced contributors to our society. In fact, many of our pupils represent the school nationally in sport, music, debating, public speaking.
