What says..

Non-selective, but no easy ride - ‘we think like a grammar school and that means knowing when to put the pressure on and turn it off to get the best results.’ Expect multiple retakes, for example, if your child gets lower than their predicted grades in their mocks. But it’s no hothouse either.  Well-equipped, welcoming and unpretentious, there’s a university campus style and modern layout. School’s sports philosophy is that there’s something for everyone, although you do see kids who...

What the school says...

LVS Ascot is an all-ability, independent day and boarding school that inspires boys and girls from 4 to 18 to exceed their expectations and become independent adults, through a rounded education that delivers academic rigor alongside sporting, performing and creative opportunities.

The campus includes all Infant & Junior School, Senior School and Sixth Form Facilities as well as four Boarding Houses within a spacious 26 acre site. LVS Ascot facilities include: Infant & Junior School environmental garden, indoor swimming pool, fully equipped 250 seater theatre with state of the art light and sound, learning resource centre, astro pitch and fitness centre.

LVS Ascot has been successfully inspiring independence in students for over 200 years. Founded in 1803, gaining the royal charter in 1836 with Her Majesty the Queen as Patron to this day. As a vibrant hub with close proximity to the local town of Windsor, the centre of London, Heathrow and Gatwick airports, the school welcomes families from a range of backgrounds both in the UK and abroad.

Proud of its excellent academic & pastoral care, staff across the school work together to ensure that every student’s personal development is nurtured, believing that encouragement and support are essential to help young people become caring, confident citizens for the future.

Being one of three schools owned and managed by the Licensed Trade Charity, income generated by the School is re-invested in the site, to offer the highest standard of educational and co-curricular facilities and is also used to fund the work of the Charity.

Academic Scholarships and Bursaries are available, special discounts offered to HM Forces, Diplomats, those who work in the licensed trade and senior local academic staff.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2010, Christine Cunniffe BA MMus MBA. After university, had close brush with the law (professionally speaking, that is), securing postgraduate traineeship with Slough-based legal practice only to succumb to alternative role as pianist to fashionistas and London high society (think white baby grands and late nights in plush hotels). Four years later, she put aside renewed yearnings for law when husband-to-be pointed out years of study ahead and tried her hand at teaching instead. Loved it from the off, going straight in as head of music, first at a Stevenage school, then St Bernard’s, a selective co-ed grammar school in Slough. Joined LVS Ascot as ambitious director of music in 2003 (school, which had no choir when she arrived, was performing Vivaldi’s Gloria at Eton College chapel just two terms later).

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.
