On the 23rd March 2017 Sussex Coast College Hastings welcomes all years to attend our Year 10 Open Evening, 5:00pm till 7:00pm, at our Station Plaza campus

This evening will have a STEM focus; this is your chance to try out STEM subjects in a fun and informative way, different from School. 

Businesses like General Dynamics and Leap Environmental will talk to you about the industry and future careers. 

This evening is designed with you in mind, so we will have all our subjects that are not STEM focused here too - therefore make sure you have your questions ready!
