Three new podcasts available to watch now!

QVS Insights is a series of short podcasts delivered by Forces Children Scotland, thanks to funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.

We have co-produced these with pupils from Queen Victoria School –  a boarding school for children and young people from armed forces and veteran families.

The podcast’s aim to help young people who are about to join the school and their parents – to provide information to make the move to QVS a little easier.

The podcasts also aim to help civilian peers from state school to better understand how life at a boarding school is different from their day-to-day experiences.

View our podcasts below, which were filmed at Rebel Loop Studios.

Episode One: First Day Experiences

In episode one, we talk to Katelyn, Alliyah, Alicia and Eva about their first day experiences at Queen Victoria School, and support received to overcome making big changes to adapt to a boarding school environment.

Episode Two: Day-to-Day Routines

In episode two, we talk to Micha, Charlie, Alicia and Katelyn about day-to-day routines, house structure, and forming strong bonds with peers and staff and Queen Victoria School.

Episode Three: Sports, parades and community

In episode three, we talk to Micha, Eva, Alicia and Eva about getting involved in sports, parades, and charitable activities, as well as how Queen Victoria School recognises and celebrates achievement.

These podcasts were co-produced as part of Forces Children Scotland’s Your Mind Matters Project, funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.
