LAE is in an outstanding, heavily oversubscribed school located in the heart of Stratford, close to the Olympic Park and just two minutes from Stratford Station (zone 2/3), with excellent links to all parts of London.

In 2020, LAE again secured outstanding A level results. 96% of grades were A*, A or B and 73% of all grades were A* or A. 200+ students progressed to Russell Group universities, including 33 to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge.  Our average grade was an A+ and our ALPS 1 value-added score places us in the top 1% of schools nationally for progress. We are delighted to have achieved the best A-level results in east London for five consecutive years.

We seek one graduate teaching assistant in each of the following subjects: economics, biology, and mathematics. The successful candidates will support the department with the delivery of the A-level curriculum to promote high standards of academic attainment and progression to competitive universities for sixth formers. If selected, you will be leading intervention classes, designing classroom resources, providing support for students and staff, as well as contributing to the marking of assessments and exams.  

LAE can offer you:

  • The opportunity to gain experience of working with young people in one of the country’s leading sixth form schools.
  • A culture of professional trust and collegiate working that promotes autonomy, innovation, and rigour.
  • Access to an outstanding package of regular, high-quality continuous professional development and support.

  • Collaborative working with our world-class partner schools: Brighton College, Caterham School, Eton College, Forest School, Highgate School and UCS Hampstead.
