Top independent schools join forces with Premier League Football Club to provide unique educational opportunity.

Mill Hill School Foundation is delighted to be a partner with London Academy of Excellence Tottenham (LAE Tottenham) which opened this September with 125 pupils. The LAE is a state-funded sixth form, welcoming A-level students from Tottenham and Haringey into Year 12. There are a number of features, however, that makes this sixth form different:

  • Eight independent schools are partnering with Highgate School and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club (THFC) to support the Academy
  • It is located within Hotspur new stadium development
  • The Academy is set to follow on from the success of the first LAE in Stratford – labelled the ‘Eton of the East End’

 The Academy has focused on attracting local students most likely to benefit from an academically-rigorous curriculum, and those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds. By teaming with the following high achieving independent schools, the Academy hopes to create greater opportunity and social mobility in this part of the capital:

Highgate School, Alleyn’s, Chigwell, Harrow, North London Collegiate, St Dunstan’s, St Albans and Haberdashers Aske’s Boys.

We look forward to sharing in the development of this exciting educational initiative in North West London.
