    Ski Blog 2017 - We Have Arrived!

    Day 1:

    Following a very tiring day of travelling, the students had their first 5 hours of skiing on the slopes today. They embraced the challenge of skiing in a new environment; even their instructors commented on how dedicated and enthusiastic they were. Conditions on the mountain were challenging at times but no student was put off by this - everyone set out to enjoy themselves as much as possible.

    We were thrilled to welcome current 200m Paralympic champion and world record holder at 200m and marathon, Richard Whitehead MBE, to Alec Hunter last week. Richard was due to be the guest speaker at our Sports Awards Evening which took place in September, but was unable to attend as he was on a plane flying back from the Paralympic games held in Rio!  Afterwards, he contacted us to apologise and kindly offered to come into school for a whole day.

Headteacher's Welcome

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 new 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.
