Year 6 Admissions

School Tours

After much consideration and careful thought regarding Covid-19, and the risk this presents to our whole-school community, the difficult decision has been made to scale back our traditional plans once again for our annual Open Morning. This is largely with a view to protecting our current students from any further disruption to their education which could result from staff absences, since this has to remain our top priority.

However, we are still keen for parents to come and see the school and to meet some of our staff in a safer, more controlled manner, so there will a number of in-person tours available on:

  • Saturday 9th October 2021 from 9.30am to 12.30pm
  • Monday 11th to Friday 15th October, daily at 3.30pm and 4.30pm
  • Monday 18th to Friday 22nd October, daily at 3.30pm and 4.30pm

At these times, a senior or middle leader will escort you on a tour of the school, giving you the chance to see all areas of the Alec Hunter site and to ask any questions you may have about the school’s ethos, principles and practices. In all instances, the tours will be restricted to one parent/carer from each family, accompanied by their child if they wish.

Bookings can be made by contacting our Main Reception on 01376 321813.

Please note that due to places being limited, we will not be able to accept requests from parents of children with siblings already attending the school.


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 This video was created for the 2021 Year 7 intake and whilst some of the details are slightly out of date, particularly with regard to the roles of certain members of staff, we feel that it paints an accurate picture of our school and should therefore still be of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.
