The Lea Street Anthem

(To the tune of John Brown’s body)

 

The Lea Street story started back in 1883

Our pupils learn about our long established History

But now we have a battle at it’s very clear to see

Our campaign starts right here

 

Chorus:

 

We believe we’re in the best school

We believe our teachers are cool

Please don’t shut the gates of this school

We Love Lea Street School

 

The new mill-en-nium it brought us changes in many ways

When Ofsted came to visit us and stayed for several days

It prompted us to demonstrate just how to mend our ways

 

Chorus:

 

Two thou-sand and one the year to shout and beat the drum

And Estelle Morris a let she wrote to say to us “Well done!”

An award for School Achievement and the first of three to come

Our crusade marches on

 

Chorus:

 

Another Ofsted visit, our improvement made them drool

“The pupils have good attitudes to work and life in school.”

To say “we can” and not “we can’t” is Lea Street’s golden rule

Our standards are flying high

 

Chorus:

 

A caring school, a happy school; a lively place you see

Encouragement for all to be the best that we can be

To close us down would hurt our friendly school community

We’ll fight to save our school

 

Chorus:

 

The staff have good relationships with everyone around

Problems dealt with promptly and solutions always found

So Mrs Willetts lead our song now let’s all gather round

And sing this one more time

 

Chorus:

 

We believe we’re in the best school

We believe our teachers are cool

Please don’t shut the gates of this school

We Love Lea Street School
