School Days: 2001-2003

Leah was a popular, high-achieving student with a good school report during her first few years at Grange Hill. The summer of 2001 saw her transformed into an unattainable beauty and she would soon gain several admirers. But it was an uphill struggle convincing classmates there was more to her than looks, and in a world which oozes sexuality Leah wasn't sure how to behave. This resulted in her traumatic encounter with Tom in Year 10; ironically he would give her the strength to be the more confident, rounded individual who returned to the sixth form.

Leah thought of herself as a Christian despite not being an active churchgoer. Her friendship with Shannon had been fraught over the years, but at the time of her departure things were going well between them.

LEAH'S SCHOOL REPORT
Year 10: Ben and Max fancy Leah, but she agrees to go out with Tom. At Lisa's party Tom forces himself on her; he's mystified when she blanks him. Shannon accuses Tom of rape; Lisa defends him but he's forced to admit the truth. Leah and Tom talk at the end of the series.

Year 11: Frustrated at being seen as a pretty face; Leah adopts a pair of glasses. She joins the web team and submits an article about the rape which causes a stir. Leah comes clean, angering Deverill. Tom convinces Leah to be herself; she drops the glasses but leaves school early, fed up with Deverill's tyranny.

Year 12: Shannon and Leah are reconciled by the Stewarts' separation. Leah becomes student rep and accuses Malachay of hijacking the school web site. Malachay sucks up to her; Shannon thinks he's after Leah but Malachay is seeing her mum!
