Introduction to Alec Hunter Academy Video

We are delighted to share with you our Introduction to Alec Hunter Academy video. This video was created for the 2021 Year 7 intake and whilst some of the details are slightly out of date, particularly with regard to the roles of certain members of staff, we feel that it paints an accurate picture of our school and should therefore still be of use to current Year 6 pupils and their families.

We hope this will be very informative as well as being very reassuring for your child as you make your way through the secondary school transition process. 


Virtual Tour

The purpose of this virtual tour is to enable you, and your child, to navigate your way around the school site, dive into classrooms and explore the corridors just by clicking on various areas and is a useful tool to familiarise yourselves with the layout of the school. We hope you enjoy exploring our school.
