About London Academy of Excellence Tottenham (LAE)
The London Academy of Excellence Tottenham, is an academically selective 16-19 free school opened as part of the redevelopment of White Hart Lane in September 2017.
LAE Tottenham's principal education sponsor is Highgate school and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club acts as the Business Sponsor.
LAE Tottenham also benefits from partnership with eight other leading independent schools from London and the South-East: Alleyn's, Chigwell, Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’, Harrow, John Lyon, North London Collegiate, Mill Hill and St Dunstan's.
LAE Tottenham is based on the phenomenally successful model of our sister school LAE Stratford, named by the Sunday Times as the State Sixth Form of the Year for 2015-16.
London Academy of Excellence Tottenham is the place for academic rigour. We exist to provide the very best opportunities for our students with a particular focus on developing confident learners who achieve top A Level grades thus opening the door to the best further education available to them. Beyond this, we aim to ensure that once students access the most competitive courses at top universities, they have the confidence and resilience to feel that they belong.
We aspire to provide our students with the same opportunities as students at the leading independent schools. We provide a fully enriched curriculum offering opportunities which broaden the experience of our students.
We have strong links with a number of independent schools including our eight partner schools. Traditionally these schools have been the most successful at securing places for their sixth formers at Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group universities. These links are invaluable in developing the social capital of our young people and coupled with our strong links with the universities themselves, this ensures that the provision at LAE Tottenham is amongst the very best on offer.
