    Uniform - September 2022

    We have reviewed our Uniform Policy in response to the statutory guidance that all schools must follow from September 2022. Under these new requirements, schools have been directed to ensure that the cost of school uniforms is reasonable, that branded items are kept to a minimum and that second-hand uniforms are available to families to purchase.

    Herald Issue 90

    Please click below to read the latest issue of the Herald. This issue features our Chef and Artist of the Month, reports from the Careers Insight Day and United in Diversity Event attended by students, as well as information about the Ready, Steady, Cook days hosted by the Royal Navy. It also includes an overview of our recent Skills Day.

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 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.
