European Day of Languages

This year, QVS marked European Day of Languages on Monday 28th September.  Staff were invited to dress in country-related costumes and to feature a country of their choice in their workplace. Acting Principal Teacher of Languages, Miss Laura McIlkenny, organised a group of pupils to lead Monday's Chapel Assembly, where they explained the purpose and history of the "Day" and read poetry to us in several different languages. "Best costume" was won by Mrs Rodger, who became a Greek goddess for the day, and "best workplace transformation" by Librarian, Mrs Sheerin, who spent the day in Finland, surrounded by (paper) snow and (plastic) icicles.

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.
