Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form

The LVS Ascot Sixth Form offers top-quality independent education for pupils aged 16-18. Our small classes offer focused studies and more pupil-teacher interaction in over 30 different A Level and BTEC courses.

 

Introduction to the Sixth Form

Pupils in our Sixth Form make above average progress from the end of their GCSEs to the end of their A levels. This level of progress is only achieved by 15% of schools and colleges in England.

We offer pupils support and guidance throughout their time in Sixth Form, and help them in their preparations for life after LVS Ascot.

Scholarships, Awards and Help with Fees

There are a number of Scholarships and Awards available for pupils entering our Sixth Form. Full details can be found on our Scholarship Page.

A Level Results for 2018

Extended Project Qualification

In September 2016, we expanded the EPQ programme to encourage our pupils to broaden their education and provide valuable experience for interviews, personal statements and UCAS applications to give them the best preparations to get to their preferred university.

Tracking Pupil Progress

In the Sixth Form, a great deal of emphasis is placed upon developing independent study which helps pupils prepare for Higher Education and beyond when unsupervised research becomes more important.

At the start of Year 12, all pupils 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.
