Primary schools in the Royal Borough are where children in Berkshire are most likely to go to a 'good or outstanding' school.
Education inspectors from Ofsted said 85 per cent of youngsters in the area will attend one in its annual report for 2011/12.
They also ranked the borough 12th in a national league table for primary schools, which was published yesterday.
Cllr Phill Bicknell, cabinet member for children’s services, said the council was delighted with the figures.
He said: "We are fortunate to have schools that have talented and hard-working staff that help deliver a high quality education for our children.
"But we must not rest on our laurels and need to keep striving for excellence in our schools to give children the very best start in life."
