Provisional Planning Application

Dear Parents and Carers, I hope that you enjoy some time with your children over the half-term break. It has been a half term of considerable minor illness for both pupils and staff, and we all need a rest before tackling the next one.   I am writing to let you know what I have already told the pupils and staff, which is that over the coming week an initial application for provisional planning consent will be submitted to Stirling Council on behalf of the School. Once it is submitted, the name of the School will appear on the Stirling Council website and I did not want this to happen without your being aware of what is happening.   The School has been promised some very welcome "reprovisioning" by the Ministry of Defence, the first two phases of which will see new Teaching Accommodation and new Boarding Accommodation being built. We hope that this will happen in the next few years. Hence the application to Stirling Council.   After the half-term break, architects will be spending three days in School, meeting with staff and some pupils in order to get their ideas on what would be important in new accommodation, both the teaching type and the boarding kind.   This is a very exciting time for the School, and I hope that you will share my enthusiasm for the work to be done!   With best wishes, Wendy Bellars.

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 who are Scottish, or who have served in Scotland or who have been part of a Scottish regiment.

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.
