Top Ranking Northern Territory Darwin Primary Schools For The Year Of 2016

Top ranking Northern Territory Darwin primary schools for the year of 2016. The result is a combination of both year 3 and 5 numbers from NAPLAN. One thing to note is some schools listed have very low enrolment number so the result is possibly not a reliable reflection of the entire school’s performance and historically can have big fluctuations as well. This is why I also included the enrolment number here, some school got big enrolment number as well due to they are classified as combined with both primary and secondary components counted together. One more thing to note is that percentage is based on the number one primary school regardless of school sector Australia wide. Just so to be clear that particular school is Sydney Grammar School – Edgecliff Preparatory School and it is so far ahead of everybody else and is a bit of anomaly. Just about everybody else government or non-government pretty close together.

  1. Hi,
    I was just wondering why they didnt put Humpty doo primary, Girraween Primary or Saint Francis Of Assisi Catholic Primary. All in Darwin Rural area.


    1. Hi,

      All the schools are on the list, the table is defaulted to show 10 to make the page more readable. You can select on the top left the table to change the number of school shows. If you still have trouble with it, please let us know.
