St Andrew's, in Carntyne, Glasgow, which serves some of the poorest postcodes in the UK, such as Easterhouse, Cranhill, Ruchazie and Shettleston, was awarded three "excellent" ratings by inspectors and two "very goods".

Inspectors from Education Scotland also issued a glowing report to Bishopbriggs Academy, in East Dunbartonshire, which became the first secondary school in Scotland to achieve four "excellent" evaluations since the launch of new guideliness last year.

Dr Bill Maxwell, chief executive of Education Scotland, praised both schools for their work in developing the Curriculum for Excellence.

"I would like to congratulate all the pupils, staff and parents at these two schools on the progress they are making."
