North Lanarkshire Primary Schools Ranked 2024: Top 30 primary schools in North Lanarkshire based on latest performance data

The top 30 performing primary schools in North Lanarkshire according to the latest official statistics.

The Scottish Government has released data surrounding the best performing primary schools in North Lanarkshire, 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. 10 schools from North Lanarkshire scored a perfect score of 400.

This list does not classify the primary schools of North Lanarkshire ‘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.
