Everyone at Alec Hunter Academy is delighted with another set of excellent GCSE results, maintaining the trend of recent years. 66% of the year group gained a grade 4 or better in both English and Maths, a rise of 5% on 2018, whilst 37% achieved a grade 5 or better in both, also just bettering last year’s mark. It was particularly pleasing to note the very high outcomes in English, setting a new record for the school, with 82% of students gaining a Grade 4 or better and 64% claiming a Grade 5 or above.
On Monday 20 May students from Year 9 and Year 10 attended The Brilliant Club Graduation which took place at Cambridge University, Downing College.

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.
