London Academy of Excellence, Tottenham (LAET) has been named The Sunday Times Sixth Form College of the Year by Parent Power, The Sunday Times Schools Guide.
Parent Power is widely acknowledged as the most authoritative survey of the country’s best schools because it identifies the 2,000 highest-achieving schools in the UK, ranked by their most recently published examination results. It also enables parents to compare the performance of a given school with other schools in the same town, local authority or nationally.
Alastair McCall, editor of Parent Power, said: “The first year of A-level results from this new sixth form college have earned it our Sixth Form College of the Year award. Modelled on the template of its sister school in Stratford, which won the same award five years ago, LAE Tottenham has arrived in style.”
LAET, based in the Tottenham Hotspur development is a partnership between Spurs and Highgate School that provides teaching to talented, local students.
LAET pupils scored heavily in their A-levels last year and again this year, with more than two-thirds of the students progressing to Russell Group universities and 11 gaining places at Oxford or Cambridge this summer.
Headteacher, Jan Balon said: “We are exceptionally proud of what is being achieved by our students here in Tottenham. They are proving that given the right support they will flourish and I’m excited about the future impact they will have in the local area and beyond.”
Daniel Levy, Chairman, Tottenham Hotspur, said: “We are extremely proud that LAE Tottenham has been recognised as The Sunday Times Sixth Form College of the Year.
“Since opening its doors in 2017, the school has achieved exactly what it set out to do – provide Tottenham’s brightest students with the platform to further their educational aspirations, regardless of socio-economic background.
“The two sets of A-Level results, coupled with this prestigious award, once again highlights the talent that exists amongst young people in Tottenham.
“A huge amount of credit must go to the amazing staff at LAE Tottenham and its parent school, Highgate, for providing such incredible support to the students.”
