Ethos and Aims


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 ten 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.
