A city centre site once earmarked for a global banking HQ looks set to become the new home of an Edinburgh school.

The new Boroughmuir High School may be built on the old Scottish and Newcastle Brewery site at Fountainbridge after the seller accepted a council bid.

Edinburgh City Council has secured preferred bidder status, which means the site will be bought subject to the conclusion of missives.

The deal also has to be approved at a full council meeting on 24th November.
