Alec Hunter Academy

Alec Hunter Academy is a non-selective secondary school with academy status and is part of the Saffron Academy Trust.  Located in Braintree, Essex it has 775 pupils aged 11-16.


Directions has been delivering Careers Information, Advice & Guidance at the school since 2011.





“Alec Hunter Academy has had a long-standing working relationship with Directions since 2011 when the Connexions service was disbanded.

Our adviser is considered an integral member of the Alec Hunter team and is fully committed to providing students with a programme of careers education, information, advice and guidance that is completely impartial.

Our adviser is involved in the planning and running of many career based skills days, which take place throughout the year including the highly successful annual Braintree Careers Fair, and is well known to all students within the school.

I would not hesitate in recommending Directions to any other school seeking independent careers guidance.”
