Heriot's ranked top Independent Secondary School in Scotland

24 Jan 2022
School News

We are delighted to have been ranked first in the list of the top Independent Secondary Schools in Scotland in Parent Power, The Sunday Times School Guide 2022.

The guide, which is available online and was a printed supplement on 5th December 2021, considered schools' exam results from 2017-2019.

Alastair McCall, editor of Parent Power, The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2022, said: “The need for clarity about school examination performance has never been greater after two years of teacher assessed grades, during which for completely understandable reasons, the numbers of top grades increased dramatically.

“We felt it was important to go back to the last sets of moderated public examination outcomes from 2019, 2018 and 2017 to get the most accurate and current view of school academic achievement. By taking a three-year average, we mitigated against relatively poor performance in a one-off year.”
