Berkshire Life - - Education -

Ten new pupils be­gan their school ad­ven­ture at LVS As­cot, form­ing the Re­cep­tion class at the In­fant & Ju­nior School ac­com­pa­nied by their par­ents.

As well as ex­pe­ri­enc­ing school for the first time, they will also be tak­ing part in a brand new ini­tia­tive in­tro­duced by the in­de­pen­dent all-abil­ity school – the LVS As­cot Ju­nior School Diploma – and have al­ready en­joyed the school’s im­pres­sive £820,000 din­ing hall re­fur­bish­ment, trans­formed from a stan­dard school can­teen into a high-end restau­rant qual­ity space. The diploma is linked to LVS val­ues and skills from Re­cep­tion class right up to Year 6, be­fore mov­ing up to LVS As­cot se­nior school.

Cri­te­ria will in­clude items such as learn­ing to play an in­stru­ment, con­tribut­ing to school coun­cil meet­ings and cooking a meal for their fam­i­lies. Head of LVS As­cot In­fant and Ju­nior School Rachael Cox said: “Our aim is to de­liver a unique and vi­brant ed­u­ca­tion that in­spires young peo­ple to ex­ceed their ex­pec­ta­tions. The Ju­nior School Diploma will re­in­force that and help de­velop our pupils”.

The new din­ing hall has sus­pended acous­tic ceil­ing pan­els to help with sound dead­en­ing and im­prove con­ver­sa­tion, and a servery that in­cludes a theatre cooking suite for demon­stra­tional cooking. LVS As­cot Prin­ci­pal Chris­tine Cun­niffe says: “We are con­tin­u­ally look­ing to im­prove our fa­cil­i­ties to pro­vide the best learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment so our stu­dents can max­imise their achieve­ments.”
