LAE Tottenham is a sixth form free school, opened in 2017. Highgate is the principle educational sponsor.
The Northumberland Park ward of Tottenham, where LAE Tottenham is situated, is amongst the 2% most deprived wards in the country. Over half of their students were eligible for free school meals at secondary school. Even in these early stages of the COVID pandemic, members of their student body have already experienced bereavements in their immediate family.
Our immediate priority was to raise money to provide immediate financial and practical support to meet the impact of this crisis on students. Now, almost 200 students are receiving additional weekly support.
We know the impact of this crisis will be felt over months and weeks to come, and we are seeking to raise £100,000 to establish an ongoing hardship fund. LAE Tottenham is facing an unprecedented challenge, and we do not know what needs their students will present with. We want to make sure we are able to support LAE Tottenham, and their students, for as long as our support is needed.
