LAE is the academic sixth form for independent thinkers

Do you want the knowledge, skills and interests that will give you broad and rich life choices in a complex and changing future?

LAE is in Stratford, East London, right next to the station and the Olympic Park. We are a sixth form that teaches only the A levels most favoured by leading universities and employers. We opened in September 2012 and already we are very successful: This year at least 68 of LAE's first cohort of sixth formers have secured places at Russell Group universities and four are going to Oxford or Cambridge. LAE secured an A*/A percentage of 43% and A*/B of 71%, results that better even some well-known independent schools such as Ampleforth and Millfield. 

Applications for September 2015 close on 17 January 2015. Applications can be submitted here. For further information or to enquire about admissions, please email
