QVS Insights Podcast returns with three new episodes.

You may remember our hugely successful podcast episodes with S5 pupils from Queen Victoria School earlier.

Now it’s the turn of S6, who have recorded three new episodes.


QVS Insights is 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.


For many, the Queen Victoria School experience begins at primary seven.

Filmed just before their final Grand Day Parade, we sat down with Lilly-Grace, Lauren, Rees, Ewan, Charlie, Darran, and Theo to reflect on eight years together.

From the highs and lows, to forming life-long friendships, building memories and taking the next step in positive futures.

Podcasts were recorded at Rebel Loop Studios in Glasgow.

Episode 5 – Looking back and forward.
