Hi I’m wondering if your are allowed to use the lifts at LAE Tottenham. I have sent this to other forums as well first time user any help would be appreciated thanks. Also you are given lockers right?
3. Do you student ID cards just open the barriers at the student entrance and used for payment at the canteen or do they unlock other rooms aswell?
4. What happens on the induction day for LAE Tottenham?

You’re allowed to use the lifts when you enter the school but whilst you’re in school you’re expected to use the stairs (unless you have a health condition)

Yes everyone is given a locker

The student ID cards cannot open any other doors unfortunately :frown:

There's no uniform but there is a dress code.

You need a collared shirt, smart trousers and shoes suitable for a workplace. Essentially you need to wear what you would've at secondary but it's your choice of where you buy it from and not school branded. Blazer/Jumper is not required, at least based on 80% of the boys.

Are you allowed to use your laptops/tablets/phones during class for note taking?

Yes, a few people in my classes do it. The school proovides a chromebook but no one takes actual notes with them. Be sure to bring your own tablet or whatnot since the chromebooks aren't that good and also just mention to the teacher you'll be using it for notes.

See you at LAET!

Don’t worry about that. LAET is a very open and friendly place. If you’re like me, you’ll take a little to adjust but you’ll quickly find that everyone at LAET is different to other schools and your secondary. You’ll love the atmosphere and naturally want to befriend everyone because of how nice they are. LAET gives you many ways to make friends, for example tutor time discussions and interactions involve talking to the people around you and that’s the way most people make their first few friends there. It’s an anxious yet exciting and positive experience! So yes, don’t worry :smile:

Hey, I have a question if that's alright. I wasn't able to do my maths transition work, but I've done it for my other subjects. Will they make that a problem, like giving me detention or anything like that in the first lesson, or will the teacher just talk about it with me?

Also are the teachers strict, or are they more kind and understanding?

That's okay! Feel free to reach out to me whenever you want :smile: The maths transition work is compulsory but if you haven't done it they will give you extra time so don't worry. They won't punish you unless you haven't done it by the second deadline which will be told to you in class.

The teachers are very understanding. If you talk to them after class they will give you as much care as possible. They are all lovely teachers.
