QVS Dancers who took part in a competition in Dunoon last weekend gained a 1st and three runners up prizes between them which was a fantastic achievement.  Some of our Pipers played at the Wallace Monument this morning for the Slovakian Ambassador and president of the European Council.  We are delighted to be asked to such prestigious events which showcase the work and talent of our Pipers, Drummers and Dancers. The MAD (Make a Difference) Group, made a difference last weekend at a community event held at the Dunblane Centre and volunteered for an entire afternoon, helping with Funday Sunday.  Their hard work was recognised and appreciated by everyone involved. 

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.  All places at QVS are funded directly by the MoD and are not subject to the terms and conditions of Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA).

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.
