On Wednesday 27th September, Alec Hunter Academy held it 9th Sports Awards Evening. Over 140 students received their Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Hall of Fame award, for attendance, participation and commitment to school clubs for another year. After the half-time video, the special awards were presented. The most prestigious award, Sportsperson of the Year, went to the most deserving, Kiera Hornsby. Kiera has been to everything and anything related to sport, over the last four years and, with her incredible talent, has played a major part in the success of many teams.
We welcomed Cressida Cowell, the writer and creator of the 'How To Train Your Dragon Series' to Alec Hunter Academy to share with us the joys of reading, writing and her new book, The Wizards of Once.
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.
A thank you to everyone who made this skills day exceptional. Trips included Colchester Zoo, Duxford Airfield, a trip to London and Geography fieldwork at Walton-on-the-Naze. Pictures attached below:
