  Dear Parents,  As you may have heard, I have been appointed as Headmaster of QVS.  I'm thrilled and excited by the prospect of running such a wonderful school and I will write to all parents later in this half term, outlining my vision for school improvement in the future. I'd like to extend a warm welcome to our returning students as well as our new students, who will joining our QVS family for the first time.  I hope everyone manages to settle into our routines quickly and smoothly and you can be assured that staff will always be on hand to deal with any difficulties that arise. Please feel free to get in touch if you have anything you'd like to discuss.   All the best for happy and successful 16/17 academic year. Donald Shaw Headmaster

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.
