Edinburgh secondary schools 2024: 22 high schools in Edinburgh ranked best to worst in new league table

The Times and Sunday Times have ranked Scotland’s 347 state high schools from best to worst – and we’ve looked the data to determine the top-performing secondary schools in Edinburgh.

The newspaper's yearly secondary schools league table for Scotland is based on the percentage of pupils achieving the “gold standard” of five highers in the past two years.

A full, searchable performance table for all Scottish state secondary schools is available to view on The Times website.

David McCann, deputy editor of The Times and Sunday Times Scotland, said: “By publishing this information in an accessible and fully searchable guide, we seek to empower parents with information around the performance of their local schools.”
