The Herald Scotland is reporting that Merchiston Castle, which is already co-operating with an investigation into claims of historical abuse, contacted the force over alleged behaviour that is said to have occurred more recently.
The all boys’ independent school for 7-18 year olds is located in the upmarket Colinton area of the Capital and charges up to £29,000 a year in boarding fees.
It follows the English curriculum and has a reputation for producing elite sportsmen.
However, the Sunday Herald revealed earlier this year that Police Scotland had launched a probe into allegations of abuse at the school stretching back to the 1960s…
It has now emerged that the single force, on top of the historical abuse probe, is also examining more recent claims.
The allegations relate to a former female teacher allegedly having inappropriate relationships with former pupils.
It is understood initial enquiries have been made, but at this time no criminality has been established.
The Care Inspectorate (CI) and other bodies have also been notified of the allegations…
A Police Scotland spokesperson confirmed enquiries are being made.
