On Sunday 17th September, LAE was featured in a full-page spread in the Sunday Times.  The article showcased the individual stories of 14 of the 21 pupils taking up their places to study medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry this September.  The students, pictured above, will join 15 others taking up places at either Oxford or Cambridge and more than 180 starting degree courses at Russell Group universities across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom.

LAE is delighted to publicly congratulate all of this year’s leavers upon an exceptional set of examination results that have enabled more students than ever to successfully secure places on competitive degree courses at some of the UK’s highest ranking and most highly regarded universities. 

LAE’s Head Master, Scott Baker said: “This article shows that with the right support and guidance, coupled with the aspiration and determination to succeed, there really are no limits on what young people can achieve.  With access to leading professions such as medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry traditionally associated with students from more privileged backgrounds, and at a time of rising tuition fees and income inequality, the barriers to success can seem daunting.  What the astonishing success of LAE demonstrates, is that with excellent teaching and expert advice on the university application process, complemented by a rich programme of work experience, outreach and extra-curricular activities, anything really is possible.  I would like to commend all of the students on their achievements and also thank both HSBC and LAE’s partner schools (Brighton College, Caterham, Eton College, Highgate, Forest and UCS), whose generous support enables LAE to continue to provide such a world class educational experience.
