NORTH Berwick High School has been ranked one of the top state schools in the UK.
The secondary school was Scotland’s only representative on the 20-strong list produced by the prestigious Tatler magazine.
The glossy publication, which believes the “best education isn’t always the most expensive”, has identified the 20 top non-fee paying institutions for 2018.
The elite list features Peter Symonds College, in Hampshire, which counts sailor Sir Ben Ainslie and model Alexa Chung among its former pupils.
Surrey’s Nonsuch High School for Girls, which offers classes in Greek and astronomy, is highly commended.
North Berwick High School just made it in the ranking at the number 20 spot.
London’s Fortismere School nabbed top place with Harris Westminster Sixth Form and Lady Margaret School fallen closely behind.
Tatler has commended the schools for offering specialisms in subjects such as maths, computing and languages.
Mullion School on Cornwall’s Lizard Island, for example, encourages pupils to take up performing arts.
