Welcome to the Flagship School in Hastings. We are happy to have recently
joined the Beckmead Trust’s group of special schools. Currently we are
waiting to move into our new purpose-built school, which will offer a wide
range of specialist facilities for all our young people. The school is situated
on the Ridge, close to the centre of Hastings and Hastings Beach, which
offer a wealth of opportunities that we intend to use to further enrich our
I am very honoured, as the Headteacher, to have the opportunity to lead
the development of the school in this new chapter, alongside Deputy
Headteacher Joshua Gilbey and our team of dedicated staff. As the school
develops we will work closely with families and the community to deliver a
special school that provides the excellent environment, opportunities and
support that our pupils deserve.
This website is in its infancy and will continue to develop as the school
grows. The intention is to populate it with useful information for parents,
pupils and those in the process of choosing a school for their child.
Enrolment in the school is through East Sussex Children’s Services, with all
children and young people in the school having an EHCP.
Keep an eye out here for weekly updates from the school
