A new Boroughmuir High School, complete with a rooftop sports pitch, is to be built on the former Fountain Brewery site after receiving overwhelming public support.

A public consultation was launched in February proposing either a new high school at Fountainbridge, or the refurbishment and extension of the existing building at Viewforth.

Four public meetings in March were attended by more than 300 people, with scores of responses also received via letter and e-mail.
