Oakgrove Primary School
Best secondary schools in Glasgow
It may technically be an all-through through school, but Jordanhill ranks as one of the very best state secondaries in the whole of Scotland. Excellent in terms of achievement with the vast majority of students leaving with five or more National 5s, Jordanhill is often the top choice among families who live between the city centre and Clydebank.
Mearns Castle High School
Ideal if you live in South Glasgow, Mearns Castle is also rated among the top schools in the country. Lying along Waterfoot Road by the landmark which lends its name, the school is next door to Millennium Park and opens up to miles of beautiful open countryside. Back in the classroom, it’s one of Scotland’s highest-performing state secondaries when it comes to exam results, and usually passes inspections with flying colours.
St Ninian’s High School
Prioritising local primaries for admission yet accepting students from places such as Rutherglen and Cambuslang, St Ninian’s is another of the most popular high schools in Glasgow. It’s also only around two miles from our incredible Riverside @ Cathcart development, where you can find a collection of beautiful family homes matched by a wonderful setting.
