Pride Through Success

Welcome to The Hastings Academy. I am delighted to be the Principal of this wonderful school, in which I have worked since 2016. During that time and in close liaison with Mr Smith, Lead Principal and our dedicated leadership team, staff, parents, carers and students, we have created an academy which has grown in stature and reputation, across the county.

We are now one of the most popular and over-subscribed schools, within the local area and we are proud to serve and work alongside our community. The culture, climate and ethos is one of hard work and an endeavour to aspire to achieve the very best for all.

I look forward to continuing the outstanding work, of the last two years, as we work towards assuring a secure future for all our students.
