PUPILS at one Midlothian school are getting smarter – and it shows.

A new dress code has been introduced at Newbattle Community High School to coincide with the new session.

Head teacher Colin Taylor said: “We had a dress code, but this is an update of that.

“Youngsters had made representations saying that they would like a change from sweatshirts and polo shirts, and I think that shows a level of maturity and appreciation of the image that the school is trying to embrace.”
