Pride Through Success

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.
