  • the chance to be involved in exciting projects in the Hastings Opportunity Area
  • strong support from East Sussex local authority and the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton
  • a coastal location in the town with good transport links and a vibrant cultural environment.

We warmly welcome visits to our School from prospective candidates. Please contact the Headteacher’s PA, Debbie Read, on 01424 427801, to arrange a mutually convenient time to visit.
