Principal Designate Jan Balon’s Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the London Academy of Excellence Tottenham. The mission of our new school is a simple one - to provide students with a first class academic education in the heart of Tottenham. To support this, LAE Tottenham is proud to have the backing of our principal educational sponsor, Highgate School. Alongside Highgate, we have developed an ethos that focuses primarily on outstanding academic achievement, but also prioritises the development of young peoples' skills and personal qualities thereby supporting them to make a positive contribution to society.

Students at LAE Tottenham will have the opportunity to study a curriculum of what top universities call facilitating A Level subjects, giving them the opportunity to aim for the very best destinations at university and employment. The expertise shared through Highgate and our nine other partner schools will aim to break down all barriers to top class higher education, regardless of the background of our students.

We are also extremely fortunate to receive significant support from Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, including a beautiful school building adjacent to the new White Hart Lane development, which will become a beacon of academic excellence.

I am hugely excited about the opportunities that LAE Tottenham will offer and look forward to welcoming prospective parents and students over the coming months.
