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.
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.
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.
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.
