As a member of the University of Brighton Academies Trust, our vision is to be a centre of excellence in education, where every student is given the support they need to achieve their dreams. We believe that by working together, we can make a real difference in the lives of our students, and we are committed to delivering excellence in everything we do.

Our four Trust-wide values are:

Achieving Ambitions is about inspiring our people to be the best they can be, celebrating our success, dreaming big, and empowering our children to lead fulfilling lives. By doing this, we can transform lives and broaden horizons, while encouraging a culture of sustainability.

Working Together means we can create a vibrant, inclusive community that’s open and honest and shares ideas and best practices. We support and challenge each other to deliver great service and continually encourage collaboration and strong partnerships.

Delivering Excellence ensures we are resilient and determined and develop a creative flag-ship curriculum for all our children delivered through excellent teaching and learning. Sharing expertise and knowledge, exploring possibilities, rewarding innovation, and challenging and motivating our children and staff to have high expectations and aspirations are all at the heart of this value.

Nurturing Potential, last but not least, is focusing on treating others as we wish to be treated and empowering children and staff to flourish. From this, we attract and retain staff through flexible structures and career pathways and offer children and staff wellbeing support.

At the Hastings Academy, we believe in nurturing within our community; aspiration, self-worth, courage, a respect for learning, ‚Äčthe drive for a successful personal and collective future and the desire for all to achieve and prosper.

We believe in:

The individual - seeing each person as unique, valuable and important regardless of background, race, gender, belief or other personal characteristic.

Our community - recognising the importance of our local communities, their contribution to present and future generations, and their role in making a fairer and safer society.

Our environment - recognising the uniqueness and fragility of the environment and the importance of sustainable development.

Diversity - recognising the value of diversity and its contribution to a richer and more inclusive society.

Care and support - helping each other and understanding that we all need support at certain times in our lives.

Respect - treating everyone with respect, valuing their humanity and going ‘that extra mile’ to support each other.
