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 recent years, LAE has consistently secured outstanding A level results with 96% of grades at A*, A or B and 73% of grades at A* or A.
