Part of the Forward Education Trust

Local Academy Council

Welcome to the Lea Hall Local Academy Council Page.

The Trust Board of Forward Education Trust has decided to suspend the activity of the Local Academy Council for up to a 12-month period, to be replaced by an Education Advisory Board (EAB). The EAB will work in conjunction with school leaders, the whole staff team and the Trust Executive Team.  We will continue to work hard for the boys, their families and our staff colleagues as we move Lea Hall Academy forward together.    The EAB will communicate to parents regularly, via school leaders and the Chief Executive of the Trust, with regards to plans for the school and progress being made.  

Any queries can be directed to or
