Pastoral care is a great priority at LVS Ascot. In LVS Ascot Senior School each child is allocated to a house, and within that to a tutor group. House Masters and Mistresses, supported by teams of tutors, oversee the welfare and development of their pupils. In LVS Ascot Junior School, pastoral care is undertaken by the children's class teacher.
Students are encouraged to give their best, whether the goal is university entrance, success at GCSE, honour on the Sports field, artistic endeavour, or coping with the trials and tribulations of growing up. LVS Ascot aims to develop ‘caring, confident citizens’ for the future.
