    On Tuesday 27th January, Mr Lawn and Mrs Artus attended the Jack Petchey Award Presentation evening, which was held at the Braintree Arts Theatre. The evening was well attended by schools from the local region, and we celebrated the success of six of our students, who received the Jack Petchey Winners’ Award of a boxed medallion for their various achievements. As usual, our students were great ambassadors for the school, looking proud to be AHA students and extremely smart in their uniform.

  • Our Future Workshops - 26th March

    Our Future Workshops - 26th March

    We are delighted to invite you to our second evening of workshops, on Thursday 26th March.  The focus for the evening will be helping students prepare and cope with the pressure of exams.  Our Year 8 exams week commences on Monday 27th April when students will be completing end of year exams in many of their subjects.  The set up will replicate GCSE exam conditions, so as to help students become accustomed to exam conditions and learn vital revision skills.

    The workshops aim to offer guidance on how parents can best support students with their revision and coping with stress at home, and the proposed plan for the evening is as follows:

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.
