Hastings School is a fully authorised British School founded in 1971 offering both primary and secondary education to students of all nationalities.
Hastings School is situated in a quiet residential area in the northern part of the city close to three different Metro (underground) stops. It has a split site location but the two buildings are very close to each other. The facilities on both sites have been extensively improved and developed during the past two years providing a stimulating and well resourced environment for the pupils. In the Secondary department specialist facilities include an information technology room, library art and design room, laboratories and gymnasium.

Hastings School offers a broad and balanced curriculum. Primary staff, while giving specific attention to literacy and numeracy, ensures full coverage of the National Curriculum. In the Secondary School a wide range of subjects is available in arts, humanities and sciences leading to examination at I.G.C.S.E. and `Advanced` level. The Spanish department provides classes in language and social studies, based on the Spanish national curriculum. Students are carefully prepared for university with both the British and Spanish systems and careers advice is readily available. As the school is fully authorised, pupils are able to validate their studies.
All staff place great emphasis on the quality of relationships and the importance of mutual respect. The friendly and quiet atmosphere is maintained through a discipline code based on clear rules and procedures and positive rewards for good behaviour. Education at the school is not seen narrowly in terms of the obligatory curriculum and considerable attention is paid to other aspects of school life; for example assemblies, visiting speakers, conferences and outside visits. There is also a range of extra curricular activities including judo, ballet, chess and guitar classes.

All the staff responsible for teaching the British National Curriculum subjects are British trained and well qualified.The school day and the year
Hastings normally begins during the second week in September and ends the year in the third week in June. The school day is staggered to allow parents to drop children off and pick them up at the respective schools. I.e. The seniors begin at 8.45am and finish at 4.20 pm, whilst the Infants begin the day at 9.00am and finish at 4.10pm.

Hastings offers pupils a secure and happy environment within which to fulfil their potential and to prepare for the demands of a rapidly changing society. The students are expected to work hard and the majority of students work towards achieving nine IGCSE passes, five "AS" levels and three or four full "A" levels. The expectation is that 100% of Hastings pupils will attend university.
