A school with a track record of getting poorer teenagers into Oxbridge is teaching them to overcome “imposter syndrome” and cope with being the first in the family to go to university. London Academy of Excellence, in Tottenham, in one of the poorest wards in the country, has introduced counselling for students, some of whom juggle care responsibilities with school work, and bear the weight of parents’ expectations to become doctors and engineers.
