Alec Hunter Academy will be open as usual on Monday 11th December, unless there is a significant snowfall over night. However, due to the fact that we have numerous colleagues who travel long distances and it appears that travel may be problematic, morning registration will not be until 9:30am to allow both staff and students more time to make journeys safely. Students arriving at school before 9:30 may gather in the Small Hall and Gym, where there will be staff on hand to supervise. There will be a staff briefing at 9:20am, registration will run from 9:30am to 9:45am, and then Period 2 will start as normal at 9:45am. Year 9 students should register at 9:30 and then make their way directly to the Main Hall for Celebration Assembly. The remainder of the day should run as normal. PRESS 'CONTINUE READING' FOR MORE INFORMATION

    Christmas Box Appeal 2017

    The staff and students at Alec Hunter have just completed their annual campaign to make up as many shoe boxes filled with toys, toiletries, sweets etc for the Samaritan’s Purse ‘Operation Christmas Child’. This year we donated 84 boxes – one more than our total last year! A huge thank you to everyone who took part. Special mention goes to Joe Stokes in 9A who donated a staggering 24 boxes!

    The tutor group in each year group with the most boxes won a tub of sweets. The winning tutor groups were: 7U, 8U, 9A, 10T, 11T.

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.
