LAE is an ambitious, academically selective sixth form in the heart of Stratford, close to the Olympic Park and just two minutes from Stratford Station (now zone 2/3), with excellent links to all parts of London.

In 2016 LAE secured outstanding A level results. 86% of A level grades were A*, A or B and half of all grades were A* or A. The school is heavily oversubscribed with more than 2500 applications each year. This year, a record number of twenty of our sixth formers have offers of places at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge.

We seek a teacher committed to high academic standards but also one who can communicate to young people an enthusiasm for your subject. A teaching qualification is not required for this post, but a passion for chemistry and for teaching young people is a necessity.

What LAE can offer you:

  • the opportunity to teach your subject to the highest standard to many of the most able and inquisitive young people in east London;
  • a regular high-quality continuous professional development and support;
  • a modern and positive learning environment minutes from the Olympic Park and Stratford Station;
  • collaborative working with our partner schools such as Brighton College, Highgate School and Eton College;
  • an NQT induction programme where new teachers are "guided skilfully to develop their practice as part of a cohesive and collegiate team", (Newham Partnership Working, November 2015).
