The Hastings Academy and the St Leonards Academy, part of the Hastings Academies Trust and sponsored by the University of Brighton, recorded 42% and 58% of 5A*-C grades respectively, including maths and English. The Hastings Academy results rose by 6% overall. At St Leonards Academy, 18.5% of all grades achieved were A or A*, which is the highest ever proportion of top grades.
Jenny Jones, Executive Principal of both academies said “We are so proud of our students, especially with the progress that they have made in the time that they have been with us. They and their teachers have worked so hard to achieve these great results.”
The University of Brighton, regarded as the most involved Higher Education institution in academies in the country, helped develop the Hastings academies from three previously under-performing schools.
