Important Information regarding new sort code for SCC bank account

Whole School Important

Recently, parents will have received information from St Columba’s College regarding the decision of Barclays Bank to change the sort code for the college bank account.

The following link explains the rationale for this change :–

Unfortunately this information has coincided with recent articles in the media regarding attempts by fraudsters to divert independent school fee payments into their own accounts. This has led to confusion and a number of parents rightly querying whether our messages were genuine

We would like to make clear to you that the School has only changed its sort code and the account number remains the same.

If you wish to discuss any aspect regarding the payment of fees, please contact the Fees Administrator, Mrs Parrington. Her email address is Fees@stcolumbascollege.org

I apologise for any confusion that this matter has caused and future changes will be publicised in the Headmasters end of term letter.

Mr. P. Daly

Bursar
