Secondary School

Although Hastings School is non-selective, we need to make sure that any student who joins us already possesses a suitable level of spoken and written English, so that they can make good academic progress from their first day at school. In order to join the secondary school we will need to have the child’s two most recent school reports.

Parents should complete and return the necessary paperwork, including previous school reports. If a place is available, an appointment will be made for parents to visit the school and for their child to meet the Head of Secondary. At this point potential students may be asked to sit an English exam, or exams specific to the subject areas they wish to study, depending on each child’s individual application. These exams will be appropriate to the child’s year group.
