Grand Day rehearsals are well under way as we prepare for the big day itself next Friday.  It is hard to believe that we are only one week away from the end of term.   On Wednesday this week we held the QVS Beats Beethoven Fun Run where we raised funds for Parkinson's and CHAS.  All of the pupils and staff who took part enjoyed a fun afternoon and didn't let the weather dampen the occasion! Our Sports Day event will be held this afternoon.  S5 & S6 pupils are looking forward to the Senior Prom which will be held on Sunday evening.

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.
