Avenches Tattoo Switzerland

Members of the QVS Pipes and Drums are off to Switzerland early on Monday morning, to take part in the Avenches Tattoo. Twenty-eight pupils and three members of staff are looking forward to their experience, the band having played in Basel and Zurich before, but not Avenches. The QVS Pipes, Drums and Dancers play across Scotland, as well, and have both enjoyed their time and impressed thousands of spectators when performing at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, most recently in 2012 and 2008. If you would like to enjoy our music "live", the next home performance is on Battle of Britain Parade Sunday, 13th September, at 1030 here at QVS.

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.
