Live and work in Hastings

"Hastings has some amazing countryside nearby, so I live on the side of town with a massive country park. From my house, it’s a five minute walk and you’re basically in the countryside, where you can go on these amazing cliff top walks.

"Hastings has quite a small town feel – everyone’s really friendly, but it is big enough that you have the big shops."

Bryony Hackett-Evans, teacher at Ark Blacklands Primary Academy

Hastings’ burgeoning art scene, historic old town and seaside air make it an attractive place to work and live. 

Ark Blacklands Primary Academy is Hastings' fastest-improving primary school. Located near the 109-acre Alexandra Park, Ark Blacklands Primary Academy recently celebrated having the most improved SATs results in the area and features an innovative outdoor learning centre and greenhouse which supplies fresh produce to the school canteen.
