SCHOOL NOTICES

News as at 29th April 2016

The S3 & S4 pupils enjoyed the Spring Fling held in Central Hall last Sunday evening.  We are very grateful for the staff who give up their free time to host such events for the benefit of our young people.   The boys Bronze Duke of Edinburgh practice expedition took place last weekend, but due to weather conditions, the girls Bronze practice expedition due to take place this weekend has been postponed for a week.  It is hard to comprehend that we are having such wintery conditions when it is almost May! We are very pleased to let you know that our Catering Team, ESS, were awarded a pass at their recent EH (Environmental Health) Inspection, and they have also received a Healthy Living Award for the food provided.  Well done to ESS. We have our final Parade before Grand Day this Sunday, 1st May.  We look forward to welcoming many visitors to the Parade.

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.
