SCHOOL NOTICES

News as at 26th May 2016

We welcomed The Lord High Commissioner and guests to QVS on Wednesday of this week.  The party enjoyed lunch with some staff and pupils, a visit to the QVS Chapel, a display by our Pipers, Drummers and Dancers, and visits to some lessons.  The visit was very well received and the weather was also kind, which was a bonus.  Activity day for P7-S3 students takes place on Friday 27th, and pupils will be enjoying gorge walking and canyoning or paintballing to name but a few activities. The Paris trip departs on Saturday and returns on Wednesday.  We wish pupils and staff a safe and happy 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.  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.
