There are currently around 1160 pupils at HCC.[1] Hailsham Community College has five buildings, a main block, science block, craft block and sixth form block, as well as an extensive sports hall and astro turf. The sports hall is a million pound lottery-funded building which was built in 2006.[2] The school is split up into five different houses: Simmonds, Farah, Ennis, Wiggins and Murray.
