Intro to Sitxth Form

Welcome to Sixth Form at Hastings Nexus

Hastings Nexus is the pre-university experience at Hastings School. It has its own campus at Manuel Marañón 8, a purpose-built learning centre for students aged 16 to 18.

We offer a personalised curriculum, as well as facilities and educational resources specifically designed so students realise their full potential as they prepare for university and their future careers.



Higher Education in Spain

As part of our Sixth Form experience at Hastings, we like to treat students as young adults but this also means that they, in turn, need to take ownership of their own learning. In the Sixth Form, the academic ‘jump’ from IGCSE to AS level is considerable and the level and intensity of the student workload increases significantly. This means that students need to be well-organised, be able to work independently and self-motivate, whilst also seeking and following advice from teaching staff. Using free time well, both in and out of school, is all part of the post-16 learning curve. Students are therefore expected to carry out homework, coursework, wider reading and research and dedicate approximately 4 -5 hours’ work beyond the classroom per week, per subject.
