Edinburgh's schools have been declared top class after achieving exam results above the national average, with improvements made at some of the Capital’s poorest performing schools.

New figures reveal exam results in Standard Grades, Highers and Advanced Highers in some of the city’s most deprived areas have improved, while schools in affluent areas continue to outperform the rest of the country.

A breakdown of the city’s 23 high schools showed some of the best results being attained at Boroughmuir, Currie, Firrhill, James Gillespie’s, the Royal High and St Thomas of Aquin’s, with significant improvements also achieved at Wester Hailes Education Centre (WHEC) and Craigroyston Community High School.
