West St Leonards Primary Academy are pleased to welcome new parents and their children to our school at this exciting time.

We became an academy with the University of Brighton Academies Trust (formerly Hastings Academies Trust) on 1st November 2013 because we feel working together as a group of schools will provide the best education for your children.

"We aim to support all children in a safe and caring environment with exciting and relevant teaching and learning experiences ."


"We are a community that enables children, teachers and parents to work together so that our pupils achieve their best."


The benefits of being an academy include:
• set access to expert advice and support from our lead sponsor, the University of Brighton Academies Trust, to further develop our teaching
• curriculum freedoms; as an academy we can develop learning that really excites children
• the continuation of our distinctive and inclusive ethos
• the resources we need to move our good school to outstanding.

Please feel free to ask our friendly staff if you have any questions. We can also provide paper copies of the information on this website.
