Broughton High School is in north Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2009 the building at Inverleith was replaced with a building funded by a public–private partnership. It is currently next to Inverleith Park, in the Stockbridge neighbourhood of the capital but was formerly in Broughton proper, where the poet Hugh MacDiarmid was a pupil.
The school was recently named in Tatlers list of top state schools.
The school is home to a specialised music department: the City of Edinburgh Music School. Along with the music school Broughton has a specialist dance department. Broughton is also one of seven schools in Scotland chosen by the Scottish Football Association to support talented young footballers with extra coaching.
The school's motto Fortiter et Recte is Latin for 'to have the strength to do the right thing'.
The Senior Leadership Team consists of the Headteacher (Mr J Wilson) and three Depute Headteachers (Mrs P Cumming, Mrs S Bennett and Miss L Stewart). The school also has a Director of Music (Mr T Morris) and a Business Manager (Mrs J Wallace).
