Donald J Shaw (Head)

We provide our students with a top-class education, coupled with the highest standard of care. This is a school where each and every student is nurtured and encouraged to exceed their potential in every way. We strive for excellence in all areas:

  • Our academic results far exceed national averages and our students benefit from small classes with teachers able to provide individual attention.
  • The standard of care provided at QVS is very high and we are regularly praised by the Care Inspectorate.
  • Ceremonially, we have several parades every year and our SSM demands excellence on our parade square. Our Pipe Band and Dancers compete regularly around the country and are invited to perform at many VIP events.
  • Our students are regularly described as the most polite and well-mannered people you could ever meet – they are our best ambassadors and make us proud on a daily basis.

If you are serving, or have served, in Scotland or with a Scottish regiment and you would like your child to attend QVS, get in touch and we will arrange a time for you to visit.
