The London Academy of Excellence joins Eton and Harrow in the elite group, the only state school outside of China to be admitted.

As a result, alumni from LAE will now be able to access scholarships for top US universities.

Headteacher, Alex Crossman described the news as "life-changing" for pupils, adding "We’re honoured to join a network of schools dedicated to providing needs-blind university access to students from all backgrounds. Most LAE students are ambitious, brilliant young people from low-income homes. Attending a US university is a dream they can only realise by winning one of the handful of fiercely competitive full scholarships available per university.” 

In order to be accepted into the association, LAE received the backing of Simon Henderson, Head of Eton, and Alistair Land, Headmaster of Harrow. The WLSA aims to combat educational inequality and support university applications by disadvantaged students.
