In June 2021, as part of the Town Deal, the Education Futures Trust unveiled exciting plans to bring Plumpton College to Hastings, with the initiative part of a seven-year project to transform underused land into an educational hub that will benefit the town and community.

Plumpton College will deliver a green, environmental, and land-based curriculum, developing the site at The Firs, and working from a bespoke classroom built specifically to meet the needs of a diverse range of local students.
