Alec Hunter Academy is very proud of its status as a Stonewall School Champion. This means we are actively seeking to create a fairer, safer and more inclusive environment.
We are committed to:
- Tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.
- Making our school a place where all pupils and staff are accepted without exception.
- Championing diversity and celebrating difference.
If you or your family have any concerns, or would like to contact Stonewall about any issue affecting LGBTQ+ people, you can contact their information service on 020 75931850.
Increased energy levels and an improved brain function are just two of the many benefits of keeping hydrated, so it's important to us as a school to provide our students and staff with cool drinking water throughout the day.
Our school water coolers are provided by AquAid who have given us the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves. With each purchase of a water cooler, an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build 'Elephant Pumps' - a modified version of an age-old Chinese rope pulley system.
One such pump has been installed in Manicaland, a province in north east Zimbabwe, Africa on our school's behalf. It will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for the whole community.

Students, staff, parents and governors at Alec Hunter Academy are celebrating after a recent Ofsted inspection gave the school an overall grading of ‘good’. Having researched Ofsted reports from previous inspections as far back as records permit, leaders at the school believe that this is the first time that the school has ever achieved this judgment. Teachers and support staff are justifiably delighted to have made history with this unprecedented success.
