Pride Through Success
Welcome to the Hastings Academy

I am extremely proud to be the Principal of The Hastings Academy. In February 2018, we were judged to be a ‘Good’ school with ‘Outstanding’ leadership and management which is one of the best judgments for a secondary school in Hastings. Everybody from students, parents and staff are really proud of this achievement and underlines what an exciting time it is to part of our Academy.

We are a modern and innovative school with dedicated and determined staff, united by our values, with state of the art facilities. We have approximately 900 students and have the highest expectations of each and every child.

The Academy's motto, PRIDE Through Success, stands for Potential, Respect, Innovation, Determination and Excellence and this applies equally to all of the Academy's staff as well as to its students.

I hope you find all the information you require on our website but please do contact us if you would like to know more or to arrange to visit us. If you would like to be kept up to date with developments at The Hastings Academy, I recommend following us on Twitter at @hastingsacademy and Facebook @TheHastingsAcademy
