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 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).
