Best-known for its racing, royal glamour and distinguished residents, Ascot is in a league of its own. It’s surprising given the compact size, but that only adds to the character of Berkshire’s most exclusive town.

While many come for a day at the races, those fortunate enough to live here enjoy a relaxed lifestyle with all the modern luxuries. The town boasts a great selection of high street retailers nestled alongside fashionable eateries. The village shops of Sunningdale are only a short distance away, as are the historic sights and cultural attractions of Windsor.

Despite the easy commute to London, Ascot is far removed from the chaos of the capital. It’s an area renowned for wide-open spaces, most notably the impressive Windsor Great Park which stretches across 5,000 acres. A scenic mix of landscaped gardens, wild heath and lakes offer the perfect setting for a leisurely stroll.

Other active pursuits can be enjoyed at the many nearby golf courses and tennis clubs, not to mention the famous Guards Polo Club, which hosts the annual Cartier International Polo Day.

Finally, it’s the renowned local and nearby schools – many of which are judged outstanding – that provide reassurance for those relocating. It’s one more reason to join this community and share the many delights of Ascot.

Primary and secondary schools in Ascot

Ascot is widely known for its top-performing private schools, but the options at state level are just as impressive. The most sought- after are Ascot Heath Infants and Cheapside CE at primary level, or Charters School for those aged 11 to 18. All of these have been judged ‘outstanding’ by government watchdog Ofsted.

For private education, the renowned prep schools Papplewick and Sunningdale also offer boarding facilities. At secondary level, establishments include St George’s – the former school of Princess Beatrice – as well The Marist Senior School and the co-educational Licensed Victuallers’ School. Providing education at sixth form, these top-performing schools often educate students who carry on to the nearby University of Reading and other esteemed universities across the country.

 

History of Ascot

Although a history can be traced back to the Bronze Age, Ascot didn’t gain its reputation as a royal hangout until the early 18th century. It was during this time that Queen Anne would hunt in Windsor Forest, and later discover the open heathland situated five miles from Windsor Castle. It was considered an ideal place for “horses to gallop at full stretch” and so the legendary racecourse was born.

Out of this royal approval, development was to follow as Ascot became a sought-after location for London’s affluent. Picturesque neighbourhoods complete with Victorian cottages and period mansions only added to its exclusivity.

Following a recent £200 million redevelopment programme, Ascot Racecourse retains all of its former charm and keeps this rich heritage alive. An exciting calendar sees 26 days of racing, not to mention June’s Royal Meeting, where fashionable elegance meets tradition and pageantry.
