GCSE Results Press Release
This year has again been very challenging for pupils, parents and staff across the country as we have been faced with an unprecedented variety of decisions and anxieties in what have been strange times. More than ever, we are very proud of all of our students and staff for how they have coped and for always putting our Hastings family first. We are sad that our year 11’s missed out on key moments at Hastings such as their GCSE exams, but are pleased that we will be able to celebrate together at their delayed Prom. It is a testament to their character, hard work and effort that they have still achieved some fantastic GCSE’s and have become remarkable, resilient young people.
There are lots of individual success stories, some pupils have made amazing progress over their time at Hastings. They include;
Amongst lots of year 11 pupils with a host of top grades the three pupil below really excelled.
Oliver Wynne, Alana Richardson and Kian Todd all averaged around 3 grades higher in each exam than the national averages for their KS2 scores which is exceptional.
Mrs Liz Moyo their head of year said “Our current year 11 leavers have had two years of interrupted schooling, with online lessons and home learning becoming the norm. We are exceptionally proud of their resilience and ability to adapt during these very challenging times. The Hastings family including parents and staff have worked together to ensure that all pupils have achieved the best results possible.
The school has been working hard to ensure that the year 11 have not missed out on end of school events such as results day, hoodies, yearbooks, and prom, and we look forward to celebrating their successes this evening at the first ever Hastings Festival.”
The school wishes all of our pupils every success in their futures!

Hastings High School Statement
As you may already be aware there was a serious incident involving one of our pupils on their way home from school yesterday. We are unable to give any details except to say that we are doing everything we can to support the police with their investigations. The police statement can be found here.
At this very difficult time our thoughts are with the family and we will be supporting our pupils and staff in school today and over the coming days.
The incident did not happen on the school grounds and we are immensely proud of our pupils who were near the scene and helped the pupil back onto the school site, where members of staff on duty were able to administer the care they needed. We are also thankful to all of the emergency service teams who responded exceptionally quickly and have provided outstanding care for our pupil.
Our priority over the coming days will be to ensure that our Hastings family feel supported and safe.
Miss Bradley and Mr Shipman
