The History of the Smalley Lectures

Mr Smalley was a past General Secretary for the Licensed Trade Charity between 1834 and 1880.  As a result of his good work, he set the charity on a good solid foundation as it moved into the future.  He was also an ex-pupil of the school.

In his Will he bequeathed a small sum of money for a Sixth Form bursary, which is still awarded each year.  When the series of lectures was started, the school decided to honour Mr Smalley by naming them after him.

The Smalley Lectures are arranged and managed by Mr Andy Clark.

To find the LVS Ascot Theatre

To find the LVS Ascot Theatre you can enter the school from either the London Road or Fernbank Road entrances.

From the London Road entrance follow the drive around the school until you reach the car park with the large flag and pole.  From Fernbank Road drive over the bridge and you will be at the same large flag and pole. This is the main reception area.

Once parked walk into Reception, you will be greeted and directed to the theatre. 

If reception is not staffed then go through the double doors to the left of the reception desk, then through the next set of glass double doors.  The theatre will be a few steps directly in front of you.
