Welcome to the Hastings Academy

Michael Brett


A good education lasts a lifetime, therefore selecting the right school for your child is undoubtedly one of the most important decisions you will have to make, so as well as browsing through our website, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to come and visit The Hastings Academy where you can meet our talented students as well as our highly skilled and committed team of staff.

As the Principal, I feel incredibly privileged to be leading such a friendly and vibrant school that has state of the art facilities which include innovative learning spaces within our new building, extensive IT provision, outstanding sports facilities that boasts a 3G floodlit football pitch and an extensive range of extra curricula clubs to meet the needs and interests of all of our students.

One of the many strengths of the Hastings Academy is the Schools within Schools model. This enables the tutors to give the essential care, guidance and support which is so important in ensuring that every single student realises and then exceeds their potential, and in doing so, developing within them, the necessary skills and attributes required to succeed in their post 16 studies and in the 21st century workplace.

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.

Here at The Hastings Academy we take great PRIDE in investing in all of our staff through a variety of professional development programmes that aim to provide a culture of lifelong learning, continuity and succession planning.

The Hastings Academy achieved a ‘Good’ in its last inspection and it is my unequivocal determination that we build on the strengths and past successes by working in close partnership with the students, parents and carers and the wider community in providing a fully inclusive first class education.
