Mrs Hall – Head Teacher

Mrs Hall is the Head Teacher at Great Oldbury Primary Academy. She is an established senior leader within the GLA Trust. Mrs Hall has experience teaching and leading in both pre school and Early Years and also works as an Early Years moderator for our Trust. 

In her spare time, Mrs Hall enjoys walking her three dogs, Riley, Ralph and Ronnie, in the countryside near where she lives. She also enjoys spending time with her family.


Our ethos is underpinned by our school vision, Dream, Believe, Achieve. Our school is ambitious for all. Our whole school community is actively encouraged to dream big and have the courage to make their dreams a reality. Our children are encouraged to think for themselves, to be problem solvers, be creative and imaginative and embrace new challenges. I look forward to welcoming you all to our school in September and meeting everyone very soon.

In EYFS at Great Oldbury we support our children in believing and achieving to their full potential, both academically and personally and in developing a love for learning.
