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

Michael Brett


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 will have the opportunity to speak to 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 boast a 3G floodlit football pitch and an extensive range of extra-curricular clubs to meet the needs and interests of all our students.

One of the many strengths of The Hastings Academy is the Schools within Schools model where every student is known enabling 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 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.
