Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

Craig McDon­ald Stu­dents at one of Scot­land’s top fee-pay­ing schools have been sus­pended amid claims of a movie-style fight club among pupils.

It’s claimed teach­ers have a list of up to 50 stu­dents in­volved in or­gan­ised bare-knuckle clashes.

Two boys at £ 14,000- a- year Ed­in­burgh Academy were sus­pended last week fol­low­ing one brawl.

A source told the Sun­day Mail they feared or­gan­ised fights had been go­ing on for “weeks at least”.

It has also been claimed that pupils have been gam­bling on the out­come of brawls and up­load­ing footage on so­cial me­dia net­work Instagram.

The source, a rel­a­tive of a pupil at the school, said: “The in­for­ma­tion which came from the school was alarm­ing.

“They stated that it ap­pears some form of or­gan­ised fight club was go­ing on.

“It ’ s been claimed the stu­dents were bet­ting among them­selves on who would win.
