Remembrance Day 2020
On Wednesday 11th November we commemorated Remembrance Day by holding a special event within our school grounds. At 11am, Mr Lawn, our Head Boy, Travis Taylor, and Head Girl, Mia El-Fazazi, laid a poppy wreath in our Memorial Gardens and the whole school observed a two-minute silence. Thank you to Year 10 student Daniel Beckett who played the Last Post and to Cllr Andrew Hensman who was able to join us for the occasion.

AquAid Water Coolers

AquAid Water Coolers

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.

Alec Hunter Academy OFSTED Report

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.
