If you are moving to hastings is it just hastings you are sticking too? I'm on the st Leonard's side there is a secondary and primary school situated very close together west st Leonard's and st Leonard's academy, west st Leonard's has a good rating and I think st Leonard's academy has been rated recently also good ( you might want to check that one though)

My two go to Claremont, which is fee paying but not hideous - it goes all the way through from nursery to A level. Love it - worth the money, we think. We live in St Leonards and like it. If Hastings, with children, near Alexandra Park would be lovely...

Avoid the Ark Academies, both Primary and Secondary.
We ended up going private for Secondary as the other schools (Hastings Academies Trust) were both over-subscribed.

As for housing, the Old Town is lovely, but very busy with tourists and not great for small DC as few properties have gardens. East Hill or West Will have views and more space and older style properties. Little Ridge is popular but a bit tired now (built in 80's/90's).
Basically people have lived here for over 1000 years, so there's an architectural style to suit everyone!

If you are public transport users, the train and bus stations are right in the town centre. The Ridge has good bus routes, and access to A21.
