Primary Department

Welcome to the Primary Department where we aim to provide a secure and happy environment for pupils just beginning their Queen Victoria School journey.

In the care of Mr King, Mrs Adams and Miss Hastie, P7 pupils hold a unique position at Queen Victoria School and enjoy being taught by both primary and secondary teachers.

In the Primary Department we emphasise the skills needed for future learning and encourage the pupils to be successful learners, confident individuals, effective contributors and responsible citizens.

Educational visits and trips are a vital part of the Primary experience with topics being brought to life outside the classroom. Trips include; Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle, Dynamic Earth, Glasgow Science Centre and Museum on the Mound.

A key event in the P7 diary of events is the annual trip to Ardgour, near Fort William.

The pupils participate in activities such as canoeing, climbing, orienteering, archery and exciting team building challenges which usually bring smiles to many faces!

Through experiences such as these, pupils increase their social skills, confidence and learn to work cooperatively with each other.

We hope that every P7 pupil enjoys a stimulating, enjoyable and memorable time in the Primary Department.
