    Results Day 2019

    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.

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.
