Smalley Lectures

Throughout the year we offer a series of fun, thought provoking, informative and inspiring lectures to the LVS Ascot and wider community. 

Our next Smalley Lecture, The VIVIT Post-mortem Experience, will be on Thursday 3rd May.

Ever wondered what it is like to see a post-mortem? Fascinated by how the human body works? Thinking of a career in health, medicine or bioscience?

Join us for a trip through the human body as you have never seen before.
The VIVIT post-mortem experience, professionally run event, originally devised for students who attend medical school.  If you have any ambition to work in a medical environment; doctor, nursing, physiotherapy, biomechanics, biomedical engineering, psychology, trainer, vet, dentist; or are interested in how the body works; or would like to see and understand how an autopsy really works, this is the event for you.

The VIVIT post-mortem experience will take place in the Britvic Theatre, LVS Ascot from 4-6pm and continues from 7-9pm, with a buffet and drinks in the interval.  The cost for the event and interval refreshment is £28.50.

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.
