A Level Results for 2016
On the subject of private sixth form colleges' results, LVS Ascot students consistently achieve outstanding A’Level results, in 2016 celebrating a record overall pass rate of 99.2%. 72.2% of grades were A* - C and 100% of students studying BTEC and vocational courses achieved a pass.
Head of Sixth Form, Charlie Jenkins said “we inspire students to work hard for their exams, through our teaching and encouragement we give them the skills and support they need to succeed and I’m so proud to watch them going on to future successes."
Extended Project Qualification
From September 2016 with more linear A levels, we are expanding the EPQ programme at LVS Ascot to encourage most students to take an EPQ alongside their traditional academic or vocational studies. This experience provides a valuable topic for interviews and input for personal statements and UCAS applications. Find out more.
The LVS Advantage Programme is designed to help your child develop seven key interpersonal/business skills valued by employers. Students also gain a useful insight into the financial aspects of running a business and its impact on management decision making.
Our aim is to give your child a competitive advantage - increasing their attractiveness to employers and helping them succeed during their early careers.
The Advantage Programme is run over the two Sixth Form years and is made up of seven one-day masterclasses.

Tracking Student Progress
In the Sixth Form, a great deal of emphasis is placed upon independent study and the Learning Resource Centre plays an important role in this. This helps students prepare for Higher Education and beyond when support structures are removed and unsupervised research becomes more important.
At the start of the Lower Sixth year all students are given a target grade formulated through a nationally recognised process called ALIS. This is an accurate way of predicting what a student could be expected to achieve given their previous performance and general educational awareness.
Student effort, attendance and performance are tracked daily and are formally assessed every three weeks. The key focus is on getting the student into a suitable working pattern that facilitates their progress and enhances their ability to manage their workload and interests. Communication between teachers and parents and vice-versa is welcomed at every stage, either informally or by way of meetings and reports.
Being A Role Model
Take the initiative, embrace life, work hard and reap the rewards.
Our Sixth Formers are encouraged to be role models within the School to:
Play a full role: establishing, organising and running activities, events and clubs for other pupils in both the Junior and Senior Schools.
Challenge yourself: playing competitive sport, acting on stage, fundraising for charity and developing your leadership skills by joining our extensive Prefect Team.
Take responsibility: for your own actions and learn to manage your time and that of others.
Consider boarding: Gilbey House is a great preparation for university life.
