Welcome to QVS Insights, 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 podcasts with pupils from Queen Victoria School, which is a boarding school for children and young people from armed forces and veteran families.
The aim is to help young people who are about to join the school and their parents – to provide information that we hope will make the transition to QVS a little easier.
It’s also hoped to help peers from civilian/forces backgrounds to better understand how life at Queen Victoria School is different from their day-to-day experiences.
Podcasts were filmed in audio/film at Rebel Loop Studios in Glasgow.
Rees, Lilly-Grace, Darran and Lauren reflect on spending the past eight years at Queen Victoria School.
The group talk about growing up together through the years, forming a collective identity, and getting ready to leave for university, college and the world of work.
