Part of the EdAct Trust


I am delighted to welcome you to Lea Valley, and through our website share with you some of the work, opportunities and activities that take place here.

Our standards are high and expectations clear and as such we pride ourselves on making a difference to the lives of our young people. Our work has been recognised through the award of Flagship status from the Inclusion Quality Mark.

The focus on the care and well-being of your young people is extraordinary.

Our staff will go the extra mile to support every student and this has improved attainment over time with many of our young people going on to succeed at some of the best universities in the UK. We have students graduating from prestigious universities including; Cambridge, University College London and Leeds as well as other students who have pursued excellent careers in their chosen fields.

We believe that school makes a difference to the life chances of young people. The aim for every student at Lea Valley is to have the highest regard for learning and an unwavering belief that by challenging themselves, they can be the best that they can be. Our vision is to “Create an inspiring learning environment that encourages high expectations where every student can reach their potential, strive for success and embrace limitless opportunities.”

At Lea Valley, we are committed to support students to achieve in every possible way. We recognise that when students, families and staff work together in an atmosphere of mutual respect and appreciation, we can accomplish great things.

We look forward to working with you.
