Pupils in Levenmouth have been voting for the name of the new merged high school

Atlantis High School, The Big School, Vettriano Academy or the Robert Dunsire High School in honour of our Victoria Cross winner.

These were some of the other suggestions submitted by the public for the new merged Levenmouth high school, but rejected in favour of a five-fold shortlist, the winner of which will be revealed tomorrow (Wednesday).

The survey returned 118 responses with 50 names suggested (some names were suggested more than once).

Other also-rans included George Moodie High School –named after the first captain of the Cutty Sark – Buckland High, and the quite poetic, New Beginning High School and Community College.

Perhaps red ties would have been appropriate for Heart High School, or a school crest with a bottle of whisky at its centre at Cameron Brig High?

Although none of these names will ever appear on the welcome mat, last month, pupils from primary one right up to sixth year were asked to vote for their favourite name for the school which will welcome its first pupils in August 2016.

Perhaps a little less outlandish than some of the original suggestions - Levenmouth High School, Levenmouth Academy, Methilhaven High School, East Fife High School, and Bayview High School - make up the shortlist and by the end of tomorrow, we will know the official moniker of the new merged high school.

Councillors will be given the result of the ballot vote at today’s Levenmouth area committee meeting, and will be asked to agree on the name.
