School History

Grove Lea was officially opened as a First School on 5th July 1969 to serve new housing in the Lowefield area of Hemsworth. It became a Junior and Infant School in 1995 as part of the Local Authority re-organisation and included a new building for Nursery Children.

In 2008 the school re-located to brand new premises and the original school was demolished to make way for a supermarket.

The new Grove Lea Primary School building was opened on the 4th July 2008 by award winning playwright, John Godber who was born, educated and was a teacher in the area.
