Berlin Trip 4th - 7th December 2015

A group of pupils studying German, and accompanying staff, will set off at a very early hour on Friday 4th December to experience the Berlin Christmas Markets and other aspects of culture in the city. This is the second such trip that QVS has undertaken. Obviously in the light of the Paris attacks recently there has been much consideration given to the Berlin trip - whether to go ahead, whether to make any changes, and what enhanced security measures will be in place. Both staff and pupils have decided to go ahead, and have been urged to keep in touch with parents as much as possible during the trip, as parents will be understandably more concerned than usual about them while they are away. We wish the group a happy, safe and successful trip.

Welcome to the Queen Victoria School (QVS) website where we hope to give you a flavour of life at our unique boarding school in Scotland for Service children.

Queen Victoria School in Dunblane is fully-funded for tuition and boarding by the Ministry of Defence to provide stability and continuity of education, within the Scottish system, for the children of UK Armed Forces personnel. Service personnel who are Scottish, or who have served in Scotland, or who have been part of a Scottish regiment are given priority.

Fully boarding, co-educational and tri-service (for Army, Navy and RAF children), the School takes around 270 pupils from the ages of 10/11 up to 18. All necessary costs are met by the Ministry of Defence.

As well as high academic standards, the School develops in its pupils a range of skills, attributes and values which help them to find their way in life, both during their School years and beyond.

Her Majesty's Inspectors for Education (HMIE) - March 2012 Visit

The most recent visit by a team of inspectors from HMIE was in 2012.  The letter which they wrote as an outcome of the visit is available by following the link below.  QVS is visited at least once a year by its Link HMIE Inspector, as a matter of routine.
