LAE is a brand new college in East London for the hard-working and ambitious.
The vision of LAE is to create an environment which fosters aspiration, nurtures hard work and develops life skills. Students will be fully supported on their journey towards the best universities and into the top professions.
ASPIRATION + HARD WORK = A PLACE AT A TOP UNIVERSITY
It is the first 6th Form College to be set up under the government's Free Schools scheme. It will have a limited curriculum of 12 key subjects and admit just 150 in its first year, eventually rising to 400 in all.
Subjects are being sponsored by a group of 8 independent schools, hence the logo, each of which has a record of excellence in that particular sphere. With excellent pastoral support and careful academic guidance, the aim is to prepare ambitious students for entry to the top universities in Britain, the so-called Russell Group, and to the leading medical schools.
