Head of Primary's Welcome

Dear Parents,

This tall, well-equipped, four-floor buildi

ng was previously used as a boarding school but we converted it into a specialist primary site in 2010. It is a centre dedicated to Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes within the English National Curriculum.

There are three classes each of Year 1 to Year 4 pupils. The teachers are UK qualified and experienced practitioners, plus we have Spanish qualified and trained staff who offer the obligatory Spanish language and humanities courses to our pupils. There are two full-time teaching assistants who are based between the Year 1 and Year 2 classes, and there are two full-time support teachers who are timetabled to offer programmes of support or extension work to selected small groups of pupils from any of the twelve classes based in this building. The section is led by our Head of Primary.

The children receive two lessons per week of music from our full-time music specialist, and each class receive two computer classes per week with their class teacher in the specialist IT suite. Physical education lessons are offered in a rented sports facility which is 100m away from the school gates.

The enrichment programme offered to our primary children is as important as it is varied: one trip per term per class is guaranteed; a creative curriculum week; concerts; assemblies; tournaments for the older pupils; after school extra-curricular activities.


Kind regards,
Helen Ormerod
Head of Primary

Breadth of study in a bicultural context

The schemes of work at Hastings School are based on the British National Curriculum and obligatory elements of the Spanish curriculum. Pupils follow the whole range of subjects of the National Curriculum and, in addition, study Spanish Language and Humanities. In this way they receive a broader and bicultural education, which better equips them for modern life.
