The School

The London Academy of Excellence is an ambitious, academically selective sixth form in the heart of Stratford, close to the Olympic Park and 5 minutes from Stratford Station, with its excellent links to all parts of London. LAE’s goal is to increase dramatically the number of successful applications made to top universities by young people from the Borough of Newham and other surrounding London boroughs. In January 2015 The Times named LAE as one of England’s “most sought after schools”: we are hugely oversubscribed with over 2,000 applications for 240 sixth former places in September 2015. In the same month the Prime Minister hailed LAE as an example of a school which “provided the best start for every child regardless of where they were from”, through securing “incredible results”.
