The 14-year-old was taken to hospital after the attack at Knox Academy, East Lothian.
A girl suffered a fractured jaw in a serious assault at a school.
The 14-year-old was taken to hospital following the attack at Knox Academy in Haddington, East Lothian.
She is said to have sustained a fractured jaw and concussion following the assault on Monday, August 28.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Police in East Lothian received a report that a 14-year-old girl was the victim of an assault in Haddington on Monday, August 18 and enquiries into this are continuing."
Head of the school, Sarah Ingham, was on an unexplained period of leave when the attack happened.
The assault comes a year after Knox Academy pupil Molly Young suffered intense burns when classmate Emily Bowen poured drain cleaner containing sulphuric acid into her viola case at the school.
An East Lothian Council spokesman added: "The safety of our children and young people is always paramount and our schools have clear policies and procedures in place to ensure any allegations are dealt with appropriately."
