More Oxford and Cambridge Success for LAE Students
Once again, we are thrilled to announce that LAE Stratford students have received dozens of offers to study at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, taking the school’s tally to almost 150 offers in just eight years. With over a third of our Oxford and Cambridge offers going to students eligible for free school meals and 92% to BAME students in 2021, LAE is continuing to fulfil its founding mission of reducing educational inequality and improving social mobility.
With the support of our independent partner schools, we have continued to offer one of the most comprehensive and successful Oxford and Cambridge preparation programmes in the whole of the UK. In 2020 alone, our application to acceptance conversion rate was the best in the country for schools, like us, that typically send more than 30 applicants to Oxford and Cambridge.
On top of this, hundreds of offers are pouring in for a huge variety of courses from many of the UK’s other best universities, including Imperial College, UCL, Warwick, Edinburgh, Durham and Bristol. We are proud to say that whatever our students’ ambitions or starting point, LAE Stratford is a place where they find the support and opportunities to fulfil their potential.
The past 12 months have been tough in so many ways, and all of our students have shown remarkable resilience in getting to grips with an entirely remote university application cycle, punctuated with lockdowns and uncertainty, and keeping on top of their school work. We are incredibly proud of all our students for their efforts and achievements.
Throughout the pandemic, we have been able to run our full school timetable, along with the vast majority of our extensive co-curricular opportunities that are so important in helping our students make competitive university applications.
If you are in Year 11 and aspire to a place at Oxford, Cambridge or any leading university, please be sure to visit the Apply page of our website before the 5th February to find out how LAE Stratford can support your ambition.
