What We Offer

Inclusive Community

LAE is a close, supportive community of like-minded people where everybody is encouraged and equipped to fulfil their potential, no matter what their background or aspirations for the future.

We pride ourselves on being a very supportive school, with a student retention rate of more than 99%. A-Level study can be intense, so we have a variety of ways in which we support our students academically, pastorally and financially to help them reach their potential and ensure they are healthy and happy too.


House system

Every student has a tutor whom they see daily and who is responsible for their wellbeing. Time is set aside every week for 1:1 mentoring, and we run a large number of sessions focussed on wellbeing too. Alongside this, all of our students belong to houses which provide an extra layer of pastoral support and community.

LAE is supported by six of the UK’s leading independent schools: Brighton College, Caterham School, Eton College, Forest School, Highgate School and University College School. Each House is linked to, and named after, one of these schools, which greatly enhances the range of opportunities on offer to students.

Enrichment through outreach

By building positive relationships with the local community through mentoring and volunteering, our students will be well prepared to become confident, dynamic and responsible adults.
