Glasgow Primary Schools League Tables 2024: Top 30 best primary schools in Glasgow ranked according to the latest data

The best primary schools in Glasgow according to the latest education results released by the Scottish Government

The Scottish Government has released data surrounding the best performing primary schools in Glasgow, as well as the whole of Scotland, this month - so for 2024 we’ve ranked, listed, and released this overview to inform pupils and parents about the latest local education results.

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

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

Two Glasgow Primary Schools were in the top 10 schools in Scotland, with four Glasgow schools in the top 20 - making up 20% of the top league tables.

This list does not classify the primary schools of Glasgow ‘best to worst’ - as that would fail to take into numerous social, financial, and other factors like support for students with complex needs that make up the overall quality of education.
