    LVS Ascot

    LVS Ascot is a co-educational, non-selective, independent school offering day and boarding places to children aged 4 – 18 years. It is one of three schools owned and managed by the Licensed Trade Charity, which has a proud heritage, educating boys and girls since 1803 when the first Licensed Victualler’s School was set up. The School was granted a Royal Charter in 1836 and the late Queen was the patron of LVS Ascot.

    The School celebrates individuality and offers a rounded education that delivers academic rigor alongside sporting, performing and creative opportunities. 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.

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