On 25th November 2016, as part of a forthcoming Skills Day, we are organizing a trip to the Lille Christmas market for students in Years 8, 9 and 10 studying French. The trip will include a visit to a Waffle bakery where students will be taught and experience French waffle making and be able to taste and buy the product as well as a culture experience to the Lille French Christmas market.
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.
