It is my pleasure to welcome you to the London Academy of Excellence Tottenham. The mission of our new school is a simple one - to provide students with a first class academic education in the heart of Tottenham. To support this, LAE Tottenham is proud to have the backing of our principal educational sponsor, Highgate School. Alongside Highgate, we have developed an ethos that focuses primarily on outstanding academic achievement, but also prioritises the development of young peoples' skills and personal qualities thereby supporting them to make a positive contribution to society.
Students at LAE Tottenham study a curriculum made up of facilitating or hard A Level subjects, giving them the opportunity to aim for the very best destinations for university and employment. The expertise shared through Highgate and our nine other partner schools aims to break down all barriers to top class higher education, regardless of the background of our students, ensuring that students not only gain a place at a top university, but feel that they belong when they arrive.
We are also extremely fortunate to receive significant support from Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, including a state of the art school building adjacent to the new White Hart Lane development, the centre of regeneration in the North Tottenham area.
Furthermore, our nine independent partner schools - Alleyn’s, Chigwell, Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’, Harrow, John Lyon, North London Collegiate, Mill Hill, St Albans and St Dunstan’s College, offer departmental support, CPD, expertise and shared student experiences, developing the cultural capital and intellectual confidence of our students.
I am hugely excited about the opportunities that LAE Tottenham offers and look forward to welcoming the next set of prospective parents and students over the coming months.
Mr Jan Balon, Headteacher
