GCSE results

Congratulations to our Y11 on their GCSE results which have improved on last year.

The vast majority of students were delighted with their results and we wish them well for the future.

A*-C grades in English rose by 17%, in the face of a national decline and there were stunning successes
at GCSE in ICT with 98% of candidates achieving A*- C and 95% in double award Science.

Other high performing GCSE subjects include Drama (94%), Photography (88%), and Spanish (75%)
reflecting the breadth of teaching expertise at THA.

At 62% A*-C, English results match the national levels which is a considerable achievement for our cohort.

Well done to staff and students for these great results.

Welcome to the Hastings Academy

Theresa Phillips


I am delighted to introduce you to The Hastings Academy, which opened on 1st September 2011. We moved into a brand new building during February 2013 and achieved an Ofsted ‘Good’ grading a few months later. We are now oversubscribed for entry into Year 7.

I am privileged to lead a team of talented professional staff who offer innovative and exciting learning opportunities for our students. ‘Knowing every child’ underpins our values and determination to achieve success for every young person in our academy. Our ‘small schools’ organisation provides exceptional personalised care, support and guidance.

Our main sponsor is the University of Brighton. Together with co–sponsors BT and East Sussex County Council they provide expertise and resources which bring enormous benefit to our students and staff. The Hastings Academy is federated with The St Leonards Academy as part of The Hastings Academies Trust.

Thank you for your interest in The Hastings Academy website. I hope you enjoy finding out more about us.
