Thirty–nine Year 7 students went to Paris from 22nd – 25th April 2017. They stayed in a château – the Grande Château Romaine, in Lesigny, just outside Paris. The students had a great time. We had a day in Paris when we went up Montparnasse (a skyscraper with 56 floors!) to observe the view of Paris, visited the Eiffel Tower, went on a boat trip (Les Bateaux Mouches) on the Seine and then went to Montmartre where we explored the artists’ quarter and saw the Sacre Coeur.
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.
