  • World Challenge Uzbekistan Trip

    World Challenge Uzbekistan Trip

    On July 30th, 16 students returned from a really successful 16-day expedition to Uzbekistan. Students arrived in Tashkent at the beginning of the expedition and straight away planned out their roles such as team leader, cook, motivator and equipment manager. The next day was a sightseeing tour and we visited an especially beautiful mosque.

    GCSE Results 2014

    Staff and students at Alec Hunter Academy are celebrating after the school achieved record results in mathematics for the second consecutive year.  65% of students gained a C grade or better, a rise of 3% on the previous all-time best of 62%, secured just 12 months ago.  This was particularly pleasing for the school, since the figure was achieved without the opportunity to enter students several times, and against a background of tougher grade boundaries.

Headteacher's Welcome

At Alec Hunter Academy, we pride ourselves on the positive relationships we engender between our young people and the adults who work with them on a day-to-day basis. We believe that students learn best when they feel valued and when the expectations of them are high.

We anticipate that our learners will attend school with a positive attitude to learning, that they will embrace challenge where they encounter it and will be enthusiastic, resourceful, adaptable and resilient.

Our new partnership with Saffron Walden County High School, one of the highest performing schools in Essex, through the sponsorship of the Saffron Academy Trust, has injected fresh impetus into the school and will undoubtedly have a significant impact as the links develop.

We hope that our young people will leave Alec Hunter with happy memories, having enjoyed a range of experiences that have prepared them for the next phase of their education and for their adult lives.

I hope that this website gives you a snapshot of the life and work of the school and that you are able to access any information that you need.  However, if you are a parent seeking admission, a job applicant or a member of our school community and you are not able to locate the details you require, please give our friendly office staff a call on 01376 321813 and we will be delighted to help.
