Welcome to the Lea Valley Academy website  


We are a comprehensive community school who provide a caring, supportive and safe environment for students to learn, grow and develop in. The governors, staff and myself share a passionate commitment to meeting the varied individual needs of all our students, in order to ensure they leave Lea Valley with the best possible academic qualifications. We want them to enjoy every aspect of their learning and we want them to develop as individuals, so that they leave us as confident and socially responsible young people who are well equipped to contribute to society and enjoy success in whichever field they choose for themselves.

Whilst the last 2 years have been challenging, it has provided us the opportunity to make improvements, to both further improve the education and increase the personalised level of support students receive here at Lea Valley Academy.
These include:


  • changes to the structure of the school day to support COVID catch up for all and an increase in curriculum options to match student interests.
  • raising the level of support to meet the needs of each individual ensuring there is always someone available to turn to with concerns, so all students get to study in a safe environment.
  • introducing a wide and varied range of enrichment activities for all.

If your child joins Lea Valley they will be supported and challenged to do their best by everyone, through the setting of high expectations in behaviour, attitude to learning and community responsibility. We have fantastic, modern well equipped facilities to support the work well in maximising student achievement.

Strong partnerships between parents and school staff have a positive impact on a child’s progress and helps them to feel good about school and their education. By working together, we can ensure all students enjoy their time at school, make excellent progress and leave us with the necessary skills and attitudes to lead successful and fulfilling lives.

I can assure you that your child’s safety, wellbeing and academic excellence will be at the forefront of everything we do.

Yours sincerely


Mr S J Kinson
