Top Performing Primary Schools In The Eastern Suburbs

For years, NAPLAN has been the best and most trustworthy indicator of the top-ranking primary schools in Sydney. The National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy tests students throughout NSW to assess if yearly educational outcomes have been achieved by students across reading, writing, language, and numeracy. These results then form the basis for future curriculum planning. With no NAPLAN test going ahead in 2020 (thank you COVID-19!), we have to turn to the 2019 NAPLAN results to uncover which are the top-performing primary schools in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. 

The top spot for best primary schools in Sydney's Eastern Suburb goes to McAuley Catholic Primary School in Rose Bay with an average NAPLAN score of 575 and top marks in the area for year 3 reading, spelling, grammar and also year 5 grammar. Other top performers include Sydney Grammar School in Edgecliff, Holy Cross Catholic Primary School in Woollahra, and Ascham School in Edgecliff.
