St Columba's High School was a Roman Catholic comprehensive school in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. It was one of two denominational schools in the region which merged in 2010 to become St Peter the Apostle High School. The school had an inspection by HMIE in 2006 and received positive results.

History[edit]

Saint Columba's High was a six-year Catholic comprehensive school serving the northern part of Clydebank, the village of Duntocher, Faifley, Hardgate and the Drumchapel area of Glasgow. Other pupils come in substantial numbers from Old Kilpatrick, Knightswood and Scotstoun. Five primary schools provide the great majority of the first year intake. These comprise Saint Mary's, Saint Joseph's, Saint Eunan's, Saint Stephen's and Saint Clare's, although a variety of others add to this number.
