Welcome to London Academy of Excellence


I am struck, every time I walk through the corridors at LAE, by the high level of academic buzz and intellectual curiosity. These characteristics are palpable. Sixth formers and staff alike come in each day with a desire and intent to stretch themselves and share their fascination for their subjects. A love of learning for its own sake is at the heart of every lesson and, indeed, conversation.

This ethos is key to preparing our sixth formers for life at university, where they will follow their academic passions to an even higher level. Two years ago there was a genuine paucity of opportunities for children in this area to take facilitating A levels and access top universities. LAE has quickly established itself as the place to do this; over 100 of our first cohort received offers from Russell Group universities this year. If you want to secure a place on the most competitive university courses, then come to LAE. Lots of others are; we are growing in popularity and are heavily oversubscribed; over 1000 Year 11 applied for places this year.

About us

We have strong links with a number of independent schools, Eton, Caterham, Brighton, Highgate, Forest, and City to name a few. Traditionally these schools have been the most successful at securing places for their sixth formers at Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell group universities. You won't find these invaluable links at any other school. Coupled with our strong links with the universities themselves our provision is truly unique and second to none.

This academic success is built around a foundation of core values; humility, respect, kindness, resilience, excellence and independence. Preparation for life beyond school permeates a sixth former's time at LAE well beyond the classroom, whether that be in extolling these core values, or involvement in our vibrant extra curricular programme.

I would urge you to read on to find out more about this ground breaking school. Do also join us at one of our open events. We are located in the heart of Stratford, close to the Olympic Park. We are housed in a recently and attractively converted building 2 minutes’ walk from Stratford station and with excellent links to all parts of London.
