The future of Scotland's last remaining all-girls school in Glasgow is to face further scrutiny next month.

Councillor at Glasgow City Council are expected to approve a consultation on Notre Dame High in the West End next month.

The school, which opened in 1897, has faced criticism in recent years with pressure being applied to allow for boys to be included on the roll.

A six-month review of the school and its role in the city's education system was carried out last year and is set to be considered by council bosses this week.

After this process is complete, a consultation on the school's future is expected to begin.

Groups on both sides of the argument on whether to continue with the status quo or not, with the questions over continuity in education and academic performance of the school being debated by campaigners.

Glasgow City Council have said that plans have long been in place to hold such a consultation and that preparatory work has already begun on this process, which they confirmed would take place in "early 2019".
