Head Master's Welcome
On behalf of the students, staff and Governing Body, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the London Academy of Excellence’s Website.
The Academy was established in 2012 to provide opportunities for students seeking a high quality academic education in facilitating subjects and access to places at top universities. LAE has quickly established itself as the place to do just this. In just five short years, the Academy has rapidly gained a well-deserved local and national reputation as one of the UK’s leading state sixth providers, consistently securing some of the best A-Level results in the country and sending more than 450 of our sixth formers to Russell Group universities.
At LAE we are also firmly committed to developing the whole student. Beyond the confines of the classroom, sixth formers participate in a rich and varied co-curricular programme, including sport, music and the performing arts, which further enables each to explore their own interests, develop their character and maximise their own unique talents. Students have a strong sense of pride in belonging in the diverse, inclusive, high-performing and friendly LAE community and leave us after two years of study ready to make a positive contribution to the wider world as future leaders in their own fields.
The academy has strong links with a number of independent schools. Traditionally, these schools have been the most successful at securing places for their students 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 and outstanding advice and guidance, our provision is truly unique and second to none. I would urge you to read on to find out more about this ground breaking school.
