All 24 Primary Schools in East Renfrewshire ranked 2023: Top primary education institutions ranked by The Sunday Times

Here’s how all primary schools in East Renfrewshire compare to each other in the Sunday Times primary school ‘league tables’

The best performing primary schools in North Lanarkshire (as well as the whole of Scotland) for 2023 have been ranked, listed, and released by the Sunday Times at the end of last month.

No East Renfrewshire primary school features on the top 30 in Scotland - with the highest ranking primary education centre being Our Lady Of The Missions Primary School in Thornliebank in 34th place nationally, and 1st place in East Renfrewshire.

The schools were ranked on four key areas: reading, writing, numeracy, listening and talking. Sixty-three schools from more than 1,200 that submitted data scored top marks (400) across all indicators.

East Renfrewshire had six schools that achieved perfect scores of 400. Only four schools have consistently scored top marks across all disciplines over the past six years, all in Scotland’s affluent education powerhouses of East Renfrewshire and East Dunbartonshire.

Netherlee Primary, Mearns Primary and Our Lady of the Missions Primary are East Renfrewshire’s consistent top performers, while Milngavie Primary in East Dunbartonshire also scored top marks every year.

Uplawmoor Primary School does not appear on this list as it did not submit data to The Sunday Times or have timely comparable data submitted to the Scottish Government, and hence is not ranked on this list.

Each primary school was given a score out of 400 drawing together the percentage of pupils up to standard in each comparable metric.

This list does not definitively rank the primary schools of East Renfrewshire as ‘best to worst’ - as that would fail to take into numerous social, financial, and other factors that come into the overall qualiy of education.
