Inverclyde Primary Schools ranked 2023: All primary schools in Inverclyde as ranked by The Sunday Times

Here’s how the primary schools of Inverclyde compare to each other in the The Sunday Times primary school ‘league tables’

The best performing primary schools in Scotland including Inverclyde have been ranked, listed and released by The Sunday Times at the end of the last month.

St Mary’s Primary School in Greenock was ranked fourth across the whole of Scotland - Moorfoot Primary School in Gourock ranked 15th, while St Ninian’s ranked 16th and Kilmacolm Primary School came in 49th - meaning Inverclyde has four schools in the top 50 on a national level.

All four of the above school achieved a perfect score of 400 when marked up against indicators for the Scottish Government’s curriculum of excellence.

All primary schools in Scotland 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. 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 Inverclyde 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. Instead it marks how well schools adhere to the Scottish Government’s ‘curriculum for excellence.’

Not included in this list is Wemyss Bay Primary School - who had no data avaliable.
