Schools and Education

Ascot welcomes children to the races, especially at dedicated family racedays, and supports a number of local schools with their fundraising activities throughout the year.

In 2002, Ascot launched the Colts & Fillies Club with the aim of making horse racing more accessible to our younger audience. The Club is free to join for all children aged 17 years and under, and currently has over 18,500 members.

Local schools take part in events at Ascot, including bulb planting, and Racing To School is a charity which supports young people's learning and development with the aim of encouraging an interest in horseracing both as a leisure activity and as a future career path.

Ascot also works with the National Citizen Service and supports Active Communities Network (CAN).
