Boroughmuir High has been named Scottish State Secondary of the Year – despite pupils being taught in a building branded one of the worst in the country.

The school achieved the accolade in the new Sunday Times list – the first time an Edinburgh state school has won.

Boroughmuir was honoured partly for moving up three places from twelfth to ninth in the state secondary league table over the last year. It was also the only Edinburgh state school to make the top ten.
