Lea Valley Academy is a academy school located in the London Borough of Enfield in North London. It became the first specialist sports college in Enfield in September 2002. In its bid for redesignation, it chose football as an additional subject. The current principal is Umbar Sharif.

The school was re-built in 2003 and work was finished in 2006. In January 2009 it was recognised as one of the top 30 improved schools in the country, at 24th place, with 67.4% of students achieving GCSEs grades A*-C and 5 good GCSE grades or equivalent including Maths and English.

In 2016, (citation needed) Lea Valley High School announced that they would be gaining academy status. At the end of the academic year, Ex-Principal Janet Cullen resigned. New Principal Umbar Shariff started the first year of the Academy, under the auspices of the Cedars Learning Trust.
