I've worked as The Herald's education correspondent for the past five years, covering a range of stories from bogus colleges in Glasgow to the state of the nation's schools and the future of university funding. I'm interested in any stories relating to education. I previously worked at The Scotsman, covering politics and home affairs.
The council's schools were, on average, four percentage points better than their traditional rivals in East Dunbartonshire for the number of pupils gaining five or more Highers this summer, at 32%.
Glasgow is still the lowest mainland authority in the table at just 8%, where it is joined by Orkney, a point worse off than North Lanarkshire, West Dunbartonshire, Midlothian, Clackmannanshire, and Dundee.
HeraldScotland has compiled the table using the Scottish Schools Online data published by Education Scotland this morning.
