Primary School Ranking – Brisbane Northside Results


Primary School Ranking – North Brisbane and Moreton

Primary school ranking for Brisbane in 2019 is out now.  The rankings for Brisbane schools are extracted from Year 5 NAPLAN data and is based on results in maths and English.  Of course, NAPLAN doesn’t tell the whole story about what makes your local northside primary school great.  

Young children get so much more from school than simple academics, so if your school doesn’t appear on the top rankings leader board, it doesn’t mean it’s not a terrific place to send your child!  These are simply a guide based on the NAPLAN standardised testing.  This primary school ranking table is a guide for parents but it’s NOT the be all and end all of choosing the right school for your child.

They may be listed in primary school rankings for:

Catchments, parent fact sheets and other info on the top schools in Brisbane

State School Kids May Soon Pay School Fees

Most of the top state primary schools now have a catchment limitation.  This means that if you’re not in the area, you’re not in the school!  Learn more about primary school catchments here. Families Magazine also provides Parent Fact Sheets on top schools in the Brisbane area – visit our schools & education articles to find all the information you need when considering a primary school for your child. If you’re considering a school that doesn’t have a fact sheet, please comment below – we’ll get right on it!

Again, just because these are the top performing primary schools in Brisbane, doesn’t mean that your primary school isn’t wonderful!  Primary school rankings only rate one area of school life! At Families Magazine, we believe that education is a life long journey, not a test result!

  1. NAPLAN is the signature of a broken education system. It signifies top down control which directly impacts upon children’s learning. I urge parents to consciously consider the ridiculous assessment schedule children are subjected to. NAPLAN is a flawed test, it is now over time for it to be removed.

  2. I would be very interested to see how St Flannans Zillmere ranked. Currently assessing our options as we are thinking of pulling our kids out of St Flannans.

  3. Hi There, I notice that The Lakes College, at North Lakes isn’t listed, but according to the my schools website they have excellent NAPLAN results?

    • Hi Syreeta – North Lakes College will be listed in the Year 9 NAPLAN results for 2015 in our High Schools list – being written now.

  4. We live on he Gold Coast and would love to see how our school measures up against the others….. How do we find the rankings like you have done for Brisbane here?

    • Hi – there are literally hundreds of schools in Brisbane Northside, Southside, Redlands, Ipswich…. we’ve compiled the top 90th percentile because we needed to stop somewhere! 😉

  5. Nicole and Katrina – we’ll add to the list. There are literally thousands and we’re researching each one!

    Luke: Queensland is the context for the percentiles. These ranks are based on overall academic results for 2015.

  6. Hi there
    Any chance you will be adding school fact sheets for Patrick’s Road State School and Grovely State School?
    Thank you

  7. What is the context for the percentiles: Queensland or Australia? Also, how are schools ranked: 2015 scores or 2-year value-added?
