At Queen Victoria School our main aim is to cultivate as near as possible a ‘home from home’ environment where pastoral care is of the utmost importance.

We pay close attention to the particular needs of our pupils, who all have a service background, through a focus on providing a safe, happy and stable environment in which they can live and learn.

The Boarding House system with its pastoral tutorial structure enables staff to provide a planned, yet relaxed, routine essential to the successful development of each pupil.

There are four Boarding Houses – Cunningham, Haig, Trenchard and Wavell. Each House has a House Team led by a Housemaster or Housemistress, a Deputy and an Assistant Housemaster or Housemistress, as well as a Housematron.

Cunningham and Haig accommodate boys from S1-S6, Wavell accommodates girls from S1- S6 and Trenchard, which is the junior co-educational House, accommodates girls and boys from P7- S2 along with six senior girls from S5 and S6 who act as prefects and ‘big sisters’.

Our pupils from P7 – S3 live in rooms for two, three or four pupils and nearly all S4, 5 and 6 pupils have single rooms and the facility for private study.

Each House has its own recreational facilities and the pupils have access to the School’s extensive facilities and playing fields.

Queen Victoria School is registered with The Care Inspectorate. Further details can be found at
