What We Offer

Co-Curricular Opportunities

In addition to academic stretch and challenge, LAE is proud of the emphasis that it places upon opportunities for personal development. We offer you as many different life experiences as possible to help you find out what is right for you and to give you a well-rounded education. We believe this is so important that it is built into our weekly timetable.

You can see a selection of what we offer at the bottom of this page.

Sports for all

Every Thursday afternoon, students and staff participate in our wide-ranging games programme with more than 20 different sports to choose from every year including: badminton, basketball, cricket, football, hockey, personal training, swimming, table tennis, watersports and yoga.

Clubs and Societies

Every Wednesday you will further explore your passions and broaden your subject knowledge by joining and leading various clubs and societies including: debating, chess, linguistics, drawing, photography, political discussion, and any more. We also offer the Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and Combined Cadet Force. All of this continued through lockdown.

Performing Arts Hub

Many of our students are as at home on the stage as in the classroom, and we have plenty of opportunities to develop existing passions or explore new ones in music, dance and drama.
