Staff and students at Alec Hunter Academy are celebrating after the school secured the second best set of results in its history. 48% of students achieved the benchmark measure of 5 or more A*-C grades including English and maths, representing a dramatic 10% increase on the 2014 figure, despite the fact that grade boundaries in both core subjects moved upwards yet again, making it harder to gain the higher grades.
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.
