I go LAE stratford and have a friend in LAE tottenham. For me LAE stratford seems better (not biased) only becausae they are extremely organised and offer tons of help (they have a whole cloud server with all the resources you need to achieve A*s). However, I am pretty sure that LAE tottenham is much larger and offers more subjects (like cs) whereas in LAE stratford there is a smaller selection you can pick from. I wouldn't worry too much about which one you pick as they are both really good schools and you will surely get all the help you will need to achieve good grades. It is up to you whether you wish to sacrifice that time on travel (I personally commute about 1 hour each day and ik plenty of other LAE students do the same only because of living outside of London) , it's tiring mostly in the beginning but you get used to it eventually but keep in mind it's still 2 hours out of your everyday life (this wont help if you take 4 challenging A-Levels and have a tight schedule ).

I am also wanting to go to thoses two but my distances are the other way am closer to lae Stratford than Tottenham but the lae Tottenham is doing taster days for the offer holders (not sure if is just them) at the start of July. So if you want you can go to it to see if you like it. But all I know is that my friends that want to go to lae Stratford know the specific subjects in alevels they want to do. Like when I went to the school there subject choices weren't that boarded. But if you go to the lae Tottenham one that is my top sixth form I am wanting to apply to.
