Sport

In the LVS Ascot Sports Department we pride ourselves on the huge breadth of sporting activities and fixtures we offer girls and boys from the Junior School through to the Sixth Form. We are one of the few schools in the country to hold the Sport England Sports Mark Gold Award which recognises the quality of the physical education and sporting provision at the school.

With oustanding sporting facilities including sports hall, fitness suite, swimming pool, climbing wall and astro pitch our students are offered a wide range of sporting activities to take part in throughout the year.

Specialist coaches give our students the opportunity to take part in sports not widely available including Rowing and Polo.

Our Sports Programme

The Physical Education Department leads the sports programme across the school, keenly supported by other staff. The programme focuses on maximising the opportunities for as many students as possible, while also providing a strong competitive sports fixture list. Competitive sports fixtures start as early as Year 5, who have a full programme of football and netball in the Autumn and Spring Terms.

The Junior School also compete in local and county cross country championships and have competitive swimming and athletics fixtures. In the Senior School, boys major on rugby in the Autumn Term and football in the Spring Term while the girls follow hockey and netball respectively. In the Summer Term boys play cricket while the girls focus on rounders with tennis and athletics teams for both. Competitive swimming, basketball, cross country and badminton are also played at the school.

We teach and reinforce the concept of ‘fair play in competition’ throughout all P.E. lessons and through our participation in national, local and inter-house sports competitions. The principles and practices of following rules, celebrating and rewarding success, accepting defeat, participating in activities that promote cooperation with others, and inclusion-for-all form an integral part of the P.E. core curriculum. Students take additional responsibility roles as Sports Leaders and House Sports Captains.
