Hastings Literacy Hub

Hastings Literacy Hub banner

We're working in Hastings to develop a town of confident and ambitious young people with the literacy skills they need to succeed in life.

We work in partnership with local schools, businesses and cultural organisations to achieve our goals. We run engaging events in the town, support schools with the teaching of literacy and encourage the local community to get involved.

Calling all Hastings schools!

We’re encouraging all Hastings schools to run their own Harry Potter Book Night in school on Thursday 24 June!

To help you celebrate, we'll send you 30 free books from the Harry Potter universe!
