Saint Columba’s National School is a Catholic primary school which strives to provide a caring, happy and secure atmosphere where the intellectual, spiritual, physical, moral and cultural needs of the pupils are addressed. Parents and teachers are partners in the children’s education. We recognise that co-operation and communication between home and school and the wider school community are vital ingredients in the educational process. We all share the same aim – the well-being of the children in our care.

St Columba's School, Iona Road, was established so students from all backgrounds would have a formal education that could transform their lives and positively contribute to society. Since then, we have held true to that vision because of the generosity of countless community members and businesses who share this view. Get in touch to learn more about how to support us.
