Since 1897, St Columba’s School has delivered excellence in education and is recognised as one of Scotland’s highest achieving schools. Each generation of pupils and their families have benefited from the vision and generosity of donors from the wider St Columba’s community.

Further to the completion of the Girdwood Building in 2016, which marked the end of the Capital Campaign and was finished to the highest standards of functionality, design and quality, we are working on a phased programme to improve the facilities of our campus. This will include the provision of a Wellbeing Centre that will offer increased medical and pastoral care to our pupils.

The St Columba’s Foundation is something everyone can support - please click below to find out more or email for your copy of the brochure.
