University Destinations

At the end of their studies, our pupils can apply to British and Spanish universities, as well as other outstanding institutions around the world. Typically 100% of our students decide to continue their education at university and graduate with the academic qualifications and interpersonal skills to do so with confidence.

63% of our leavers over the last two years are now studying at university abroad.

Students at Hastings are offered individual guidance on the type and number of courses they should study, and the consequent career and university options which exist for each student. All students are assisted with their university applications.

We have a dedicated Universities Counsellor who provides individual guidance and support with respect to university applications
