CONTINUED improvements at Berwickshire High School have been recognised by Education Scotland.

In April 2019, Education Scotland published a report on the secondary school which set out a number of areas for improvement.

These were agreed with the school and Scottish Borders Council.

A further report was published in January 2022 which recognised the progress being made.

Inspectors asked for further information to be provided in a year’s time to ensure progress continues to be made at the school.

And as requested, the council have now a report on the school’s progress.

After reviewing all of the evidence Education Scotland are now confident that the school has the capacity to continue to improve.

They will therefore make no further visits in connection with the inspection report of April 2019.

As part of its arrangements for reporting to parents on the quality of education, SBC will continue to inform parents about the school’s progress.
