Hastings Federation

In 2008, a proposal to create a federation between Filsham Valley, Hillcrest and The Grove secondary schools to greatly improve major aspects of the school; it was approved by the East Sussex County Councilmarker.

Under Sir Dexter Hutt the school has improved in all areas including: attitude towards learning, behaviour both in and out of the classroom ,OFSTED inspections and GCSE results with 76& of students achieving 5 A* – C, and at least 93% 5A* – G grades although soon parents have put this down to improved senior leadership at the school rather then to Sir Dexter himself.
