The Development Office

Donations to St. Columba’s College are managed by our Development Office, who use the funds for bursaries, capital projects and more.

Welcome to the recently established Development Office at St. Columba’s College. The College has physically grown beyond all recognition over the past 174 years, from very modest beginnings, with three boys entering the College on 1st August 1843 when the College was founded, now to educating and nurturing nearly 320 boys and girls.

Over the years the buildings have grown up around central quadrangles. Development of the College has been particularly evident over the past 20 years, starting with the Library and Reading Rooms in 1994. Other notable additions have been the 9-hole golf course (1995), the Sports Hall (1998), the Art Centre (2000), the refurbishment of the BSR (2003), the Grange boarding and classroom building (2004), the complete refurbishment of the Argyle as a boarding House with study and dining facilities on the ground floor (2005), new all-weather tennis courts (2006) and a second Astroturf hockey pitch (2007), the conversion of the Cadogan building into a new Music and Performing Arts Centre (2008) and the recently refurbished Science Building (2016).

In order to continue this evolution and maintain the continued success of the College, we have established the Development Office. This department will encourage and build on the philanthropic support given by the SCC community and its wider followers.

This support will assist with development projects which will further enhance both the fabric of the College and our learning environment so as to ensure the continued provision of educational excellence and facilities for future generations.

We shall have more details for you over the coming months and will update this element of the website as they become available. However, in the meantime should you require any information then please contact:
