Pride Through Success

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

We are closed until further notice for most students. In light of advice from the UK Government, where it is possible for students to stay at home, they should do so, but we will remain open for children of key workers for whom staying at home is not a suitable option.

Please let us know via this form whether you are a key worker and intend to send you child to school to help us understand the number of pupils we will need to care for each day.

Our academy staff are working hard to ensure that all students are able to continue learning from home. We will notify parents and carers soon about how learning from home can be carried out.

To keep up to date with the latest advice about Coronavirus (COVID-19) from the government, please visit their website.

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.

Welcome to the Hastings Academy

It is a pleasure and privilege to be welcoming you to the website of The Hastings Academy.

It has been a delight to have worked, as a senior leader, at the Academy for the last three years, and now, as Principal; this rare opportunity to work with such a loyal, committed and hardworking team of staff reinforces the desire that, together, we will continue to provide the best of learning experiences for our students.

Our staff are rightly proud to be effecting change at The Hastings Academy and believe that the education provided to our students, will enable them to find success, be happy in their learning and achieve their goals. We greatly value and encourage our community to work with us in our endeavour to help each child realise their potential and we are relentless in pursuing every avenue and form of support to ensure we fulfil this promise.

All who work and are a part of The Hastings Academy are continually striving to ensure we are the academy of choice for our community and therefore, we actively encourage prospective parents, carers and students to come and visit our place of learning. We look forward to seeing you.
