LAE Tottenham's Official Opening


Guests gathered to celebrate the official opening of the London Academy of Excellence Tottenham on Thursday 23 November.

Guests, including Rt Hon David Lammy MP and Toby Young, Director of the New Schools Network, joined staff and students for the official opening of LAE Tottenham. Gill Aitken, General Counsel and Solicitor at HMRC and LAE Tottenham's Chair of Governors thanked all those involved in the project, before Jan Balon (Headteacher) shared his thoughts on the impact that LAE Tottenham will have on the its first cohort and the local education landscape.

The audience then heard from some of the pioneering students, including Lucy Weymouth whose words articulated best the aims of the school (see her speech in full here): http://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/spurs-tv/extra-time/

Guests then enjoyed tours of lessons to see the students and staff in action, with opportunities to get involved in sessions including Further Maths, Biology and Politics.
