Best Scottish Independent Schools

There are only 100 independent schools in Scotland and if you live outside of Edinburgh, Glasgow or Aberdeen, then regrettably you have a limited choice. At this time we rank the senior schools on the basis of Highers, Advanced Highers, International Baccalaureate or A levels, provided that they have at least 20 pupils taking the exam. In this section we cover 5 aspects of choosing an independent school in Scotland for your child.

A. Best Scottish School League Tables – transfer to this section to view the top Scottish senior schools tables listed separately by A levels or Scottish Highers or IB. Some schools have too small a sixth form for us to include them in the rankings. A few are offering the International Baccalaureate, in which case they will be covered in that section
