Sydney's Top Primary Schools for 2021

  • Parents Only

Are you wondering where your school ranks in terms of Sydney's best primary schools? Or are you contemplating switching schools and need to check out the competition? We delve into the latest results to reveal the top primary schools in NSW.

While Sydney's high schools are ranked based on their HSC results, determining the 'best' primary schools is a little trickier because some schools have very low enrolment numbers, so the result is not a reliable reflection of the entire school’s performance. 

Independent researcher, BetterEducation ranks schools based on their own statistical approach using median scores. Schools are marked out of 100 with the 2021 top 10 primary schools in NSW for both Government and non-Government sectors all achieving a perfect score of 100.

The Most Crucial Influence 

Please know that the most important factor in your child's schooling is not which school they attend - but YOU.

You, as the parent or carer, have the ability to make a huge impact on your child's academic success. Any teacher will tell you that parental involvement is critical in education and they require nurturing all the way from daycare into high school. Caring about their education and being there for your kids is what truly matters when it comes to fostering academic and emotional success.
