Alec Hunter Academy is pleased to announce that we are taking part in "Operation Christmas Child" by Samaritan's Purse, an amazing cause that provides children in deprived areas the ability to open presents on Christmas day.
A reminder that on the 20th October a skills day will be held at the school, here is a list of the activities:
- Year 7: Team Building Day / - Year 8 British Values Day
- Year 9: Careers Day / - Year 10: Maths Day
- Year 11: Science Day
Photos from the day will follow a few days after the skills day.
Staff and students at Alec Hunter Academy are celebrating after the school secured the best set of GCSE results in its history. 55% of students achieved the benchmark measure of 5 or more A*-C grades including English and maths, a rise of 7% on last year’s figure of 48%, which was itself a dramatic 10% increase from 2014.
