History, sunshine, beaches, classic British charm – Hastings has it all, and with a population under 100,000 it’s the perfect introduction to Britain for language students.
Hastings is a town and borough in East Sussex on the south coast of England, 24 mi (39 km) east of the county town of Lewes and 53 mi (85 km) south east of London, which has an estimated population of 90,254.
Hastings gives its name to the Battle of Hastings in 1066. It later became one of the medieval Cinque Ports. The town became a popular seaside resort in the 19th century with the coming of the railway. Hastings is a fishing port with a beach-based fishing fleet.
In Hastings, students can stroll up from the beach to cozy Old Town, where the buildings are hundreds of years old, and then settle down to a traditional and delicious cream tea of scones. In contrast to Hastings’ historic charm, English lessons take place in brand new Sussex Coast College facilities
Younger students are welcome on our STS Junior Course, which takes place Bexhill (located right next to Hastings) where we make sure that younger learners’ specific needs are well taken care of.
