Top achiever Katherine is looking forward to starting her Linguistics degree at University College London following an A*, A* and A in English Literature, Spanish and French.  Her advice is to be determined and follow your dreams, to work hard and surround yourself with like-minded friends who motivate you to succeed.

“The teachers at Lea Valley motivated me to be the best I can be and the support I received was bespoke to me.  That made a massive difference.”


Lorelei praised the quality of teaching at Lea Valley, stating, “When I first joined Lea Valley in 2014 I had a difficult journey due to my lack of understanding of the English Language.  With the help of my teachers, I was able to overcome this and a few years later, I achieved the grades I could only dream of when I first started. The emotions I am feeling today are of overwhelming joy and pride and I have got myself and my teachers to thank for it.”

She achieved A*, A and B in Economics, Mathematics and Drama and Theatre which secured her place at Queen Mary University of London to study Economics.


Richard achieved three great A Level grades (B/B/B) in Mathematics, Art and PE and has secured a place to study a Construction Apprenticeship degree with Lendlease.

“My teachers and peers pushed me to be the best I can be and gave me the support I needed in hard times. I feel very proud of my grades and time at Lea Valley.”


The fantastic support network throughout the school community is why Molly would recommend Lea Valley to any students looking to study A Level. She is celebrating a B, B, C in Drama and Theatre, English Literature and RE and is now heading to University Campus Barnsley to study Acting for Touring Theatre.

Teachers here always knew how to motivate me. I really enjoyed all my time at Lea Valley and could not have had a better final two years!”


Pharmacy at University of East Anglia is where Erkan is taking the next chapter of his educational journey.
