Speaking during the visit, David Lammy MP said: “LAE Tottenham is providing young people in my constituency with a first class academic education, with a real focus on giving students from underprivileged backgrounds the skills they need to reach our top universities and break into the professions.”
LAE Tottenham’s mission is to provide students with a first class academic education in the heart of North London. The school is backed by principal educational sponsor, Highgate School, and business sponsor, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
