Liberton High School has had certain great achievements in sports, such as the undefeated girls hockey XI in 1970-71.
On 1 April 2014, a 12-year-old girl was killed when a wall collapsed in one of the school Physical Education department's changing rooms.
It was announced in December 2020 as part of a £80M funding in education that was announced by John Swinney as Deputy First Minister of Scotland that Liberton High School would be rebuilt to replace the original school.
