Bearsden Academy and Bishopbriggs Academy clinched sixth and tenth place respectively in the list of Scotland’s top performing schools. East Dunbartonshire also featured in council areas where the proportion of pupils achieving five or more highers is highest.

Mark McLaughlin, Times Scottish education correspondent said: “This year’s figures are the first that saw exams replaced by teacher estimates.

“The top end of the league table continues to be dominated by schools which draw their pupils from the most affluent neighbourhoods, one of the drivers of the rise in property prices.”
