Alec Hunter Academy is a mixed, oversubscribed 11-16 comprehensive school with an established reputation as a welcoming and forward-thinking learning community.  Ofsted graded the school as ‘good’ for the first time in its history in July 2017, with the report noting that “School leaders have established a culture where expectations of pupils and teachers are high and improvement is rapid”.  Both our English and Performing Arts departments are supportive teams led by established professionals with a strong track record of successful outcomes.


Alec Hunter is a member of the Saffron Academy Trust, working in close partnership with a small family of schools in north-west Essex, including Saffron Walden County High, one of the highest performing schools in the county.  Numerous opportunities for professional development exist through this partnership and our membership of several local networks.
