Welcome to Hillcrest Hastings. I am proud to be the Headteacher of Hillcrest, and consider it a privilege to be entrusted with the Leadership and development of such an exciting school.

At Hillcrest, we recognise that there are endless possibilities for today’s young people as they grow up in the 21st Century – our aim is to ensure that our students develop their talents, skills and personal attributes to the full in order to be able to face the future with confidence and have the opportunity to achieve far more than they can ever imagine.

Hillcrest Hastings is a specialist Language College. This designation helps us to ensure that we operate as a school where every young person is equally valued and recognises their role in developing tolerance and understanding of an ever-widening community.

I hope our website helps you to get a flavour of who we are and how we operate in striving to become highly successful. Above all we want you to recognise our absolute commitment to the students in our care:
