School Music Concert

On Wednesday 8th May our students took part in a music concert, some bravely performed live to an audience and others showcased their music. The boys who weren’t involved thoroughly enjoyed watching. We are all very proud of all performers!

Year 5 & 6 Football Team

Our Key Stage 2 team played against Hallmoor Key Stage 3 team, winning 4-2. It was a very competitive game with Lea Hall taking a 2-nil lead into half time. Hallmoor fought back, but with Harvey leading from the front, showing a great all-round match winning performance, Leahall held on in the end. We are very proud of all the team, who worked hard as a unit and deserved to win. 

Eid Celebration Day

On Thursday 25th April the whole school celebrated Eid! All students were involved with activities such as, taste testing foods like samosas, onion bhajis and curry’s and they took part in art classes focusing on mosques, prayer mats and henna designs. Our school kitchen also cooked traditional Asian food to celebrate the day.


As part of their Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS), Class 7B came up with a meal that they wanted to cook, work out what ingredients were needed and how they would manage this with a budget of £10. With this project the boys formed life skills of budgeting and collecting the ingredients from the shop for their chosen meal. The boys decided to cook Chicken Fajitas and were very successful in their trip and cooking!

Year 9 football team

On Friday 23rd February our Year 9 boys played against Hallmoor Year 9 team beating them convincingly. All of the boys from the Lea Hall team played with confidence and as a collective unit. They also played against Hallmoor’s year 10/11 team on Friday 15th March. It was a very fast paced and competitive game, with Hallmoor School taking a 2-0 lead at half-time. Lea Hall fought back in the second half with getting a goal back but found it difficult to get past the opposition goalkeeper, who was in great form. Well done to all the boys for playing the games in such great spirit


As mentioned in the last Newsletter we have now Introduced the Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) into Lea Hall and pupils in class 5 have held a Bake Off as a part of their work towards the award! The boys worked hard to produce their best bakes and the Pastoral team had the envious task of judging their efforts.


A ‘Go for Gold’ reward trip was enjoyed by all of Class 1 as they attended an inflatable area where they thoroughly enjoyed playing for a few hours and had lunch. This was a reward for achieving 1200 ‘Go for Gold’ points through effort and hard work in their class.


Inflatanation Stechford Invited some of our students over to come and enjoy a free bounce. The session
was exclusive to the students here at Lea Hall Academy and they had a fabulous time. Inflatanation likes to support the local community by offering a safe space for young people to offload. Thank you Inflatanation for having our boys over.

KS3 trip to MAKEUK

Some of our Key Stage 3 boys have experienced an exciting STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) session at MakeUK this half term! 

MakeUK is at the cutting edge of innovation in Birmingham and provides young people with a range of opportunities for apprenticeship opportunities in their future! They have state-of-the-art training facilities and offer a variety of apprenticeships in engineering and manufacturing.

While our Key Stage 3 boys won’t immediately be moving on to apprenticeships after Lea Hall, this engaging STEM session will open their eyes to what opportunities are available to them moving forward.

This trip is the first step in making connections with employers and further education as a part of our careers programme here at Lea Hall and Miss Yates is confident that with the success of this trip, we’ll be able to provide this opportunity for more children moving forward!

Red Nose Day for Comic Relief

On Friday 15th March, pupils at Lea Hall Academy came to school dressed in ‘Red’, for red nose day. Both staff and pupils made a voluntary contribution towards the charity and pupils helped to sell red noses across school. All classes had a discussion about charity and the importance of this at a local and at an international level. Collectively we raised £60.01.

World Book Day

We celebrated World Book Day across the whole school. Each class buddied up with another class to share their personal favourite books. The boys also dressed up as their favourite sporting hero to celebrate the day!

Chinese New Year

Class 1 and 2 have been having lots of fun and learning about the Chinese New Year! This year is the year of the ‘dragon’. Both classes have learnt about the Chinese celebrations and the lead up to the new year. The pupils also had the opportunity to taste different flavoured noodles and describe how these look, taste, feel and smell. The boys loved experimenting with the different flavours.

“I loved all the flavours-they were yummy”! Freddie

“The chicken flavour was my favourite!! Oskar
