Head of Secondary's Welcome
Dear Parents and Students,
This is our new spacious six-floor converted building located in a residential area within a few hundred metres of the Arturo Soria metro station. From September 2016 our Year 10 to Year 13 examination groups are attending Hastings here. They are taught by our regular team of UK qualified and experienced teachers, plus our Spanish qualified staff who offer the obligatory Spanish language and humanities courses to our pupils up to Year 11 and the optional Spanish university preparation classes to those senior pupils who choose these classes.
There are 3 well-equipped and modern science laboratories, a 60 square metre art studio, a wireless computer room, a well-resourced library, a separate study area for our Year 12 and Year 13 pupils, a multi-use space (indoor fitness, dance, assemblies), and an indoor theatre. Physical education lessons are being offered in nearby rented sports facilities and our pupils use school bus transportation to travel there and back.
This is an exciting feature of our expansion programme. Our senior pupils are based in this excellent fit-for-purpose installation. This should only add to our current levels of success in terms of future university destinations where our most successful pupils go on to attend top UK universities every year, and where we are very proud of the fact that every Year 13 pupil at Hastings finishes with university options in the UK, in Spain, or both!

In September 2016, this new building located in Arturo Soria became our Key stage 4 site and the Sixth Form (14 to 18 year old). This new campus is only 1,5 km. away from the new Sobradiel campus.
This structure will progress in the future with a final objective of having a configuration that will comprise from Key Stage 3 until 6th form (11 to 18 year old). The main areas to emphasize are:
- An outdoor play space of 3,000 m2 and 800 m2 of outdoor play area
- A capacity of 450 place organized in 18 different sizes classrooms.
- Indoor theatre and multi-media space for an audience capacity of 100 people
- A dining room area (190 places), which can become a multi-use space for presentations, ceremonies and fairs
- Two libraries (1 for Primary and 1 for Secondary)
- A multi-use space for fitness, music, aerobics and dance
- Three laboratories fully equipped with 24 seats
- A Sixth Form study area
From September 2016, pupils from Year 10 on are populating this new building.
In the first three years of the Secondary School pupils follow a range of national curriculum subjects. In addition, Spanish language and humanities (sociales) are taught according to the requirements of the Spanish Ministry of Education, while those new to the language are offered support classes at their level. Pupils also follow a comprehensive personal and social education programme, covering areas such as citizenship, health, careers, and study skills.
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.
