LVA pupils welcome back former student and professional footballer, Josh Scowen.


We were delighted to welcome back former student and now professional footballer, Josh Scowen to the Academy today. Josh left Lea Valley Academy in 2009 and now plays as a midfielder for Queens Park Rangers in the Championship League. He answered questions from our very excited Year 7 football team, and even handed out some t-shirts!


Josh also met with some Year 11 GCSE students, answering some more questions before seeing them and the football team showcase their skills outside. 


The afternoon was topped off with a signed QPR shirt and photo in front of Josh’s ‘Sporting Success’ wall. Mr Broad Vice Principal, taught Josh when he was here, and was pleased to hear all about his success. Best of luck with your career Josh and thanks again for taking the time to meet students.
