We are a Catholic, independent day school for boys. We provide a broad, high quality education from age 4 to 18 and have boys in the College from a wide variety of religious traditions. We aim for each boy to achieve ‘his own best standard’.
At each phase of education, Prep and Senior, we nurture the key Columban qualities of ‘courage, courtesy and compassion’. We strive for academic excellence whilst realising that it is whole person education that best prepares boys for the world and workplace of tomorrow. As a school under the trusteeship of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, we recognise that moral and spiritual qualities are equally important in that roundness of character.
St Columba’s is known for its strong community values. We work in close partnership with parents to provide the supportive care and challenge for our boys which enable them to flourish. Through a Columban education your son will discover much about himself and also about the contribution he can make to society at large. This quality of compassionate service is borne out in the College motto of ‘Cor ad Cor Loquitur’ – heart speaking to heart.
Our community is vibrant and our students are the best evidence of what a Columban education can produce. Having browsed our web site, we would encourage you to arrange to come for a visit to see the College in action.
