The application window to study at LAE from September 2024 has passed and between now and enrolment day our admissions team face the daunting task of selecting just 250 young people from among more than 6,600 who have honoured us with their applications.

Prospective students tell us that some of their key motivators to apply to study at LAE have been our history of excellent A-level results, our track record of prestigious university and apprenticeship destinations and, most commonly, the all-round academic and super-curricular experiences offered at LAE.  

"The fact that an unashamedly academic school, dedicated to combatting disadvantage and featuring one of the broadest super- and co-curricular programmes in the country, is also one of Britain’s most heavily oversubscribed schools is clear evidence of the level of aspiration among young people of all backgrounds in London."

Alex Crossman, Headteacher

Classroom 2023 - Happy imageAs a school committed to providing opportunity and excellence in education, we undertake to consider every application with utmost care and will continue to work hard to ensure that our highly aspirational students are supported in reaching their significant potential. 

We will be making provisional offers from March, with initial priority given to students who are in receipt of free school meals.  Students who receive a provisional offer must accept the offer in principle and confirm the details, including A-level subject choices.
