John Hunt Academy is a larger than average primary school located in Balderton, Newark, Nottinghamshire. We currently have 366 pupils on roll, including a popular Foundation Unit.

The school was opened in 1903 and has grown steadily, with an additional three buildings being added during the 1960’s and 70’s. We are
fortunate to have extensive grounds, with a large playing field and many mature trees adding to the aesthetics of the school environment.
The school was named after John Hunt, who was an English Missionary.

In February 2021 the school made the decision to join the SHINE Multi Academy Trust, which was identified as a Trust with the same ethos
as John Hunt – to provide pupils with firm foundations whilst developing their uniqueness and allowing them to shine. The Trust’s
curriculum framework centres on three essential elements: Provision, Enhancement and Enrichment, which is at the heart of everything we
do at John Hunt.

The proportion of SEND and disadvantaged pupils is in line with the national average. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an
additional language and have other ethnicities is below the national average.

John Hunt Academy is a friendly, welcoming, family orientated school. Liaison with parents and carers is strong, with several events during
the academic year, when parent/carers are welcomed into the school.
Everyone works together to raise standards and improve outcomes for all pupils. John Hunt instils in its pupils a positive attitude towards a
lifelong love of learning throughout the curriculum.

The behaviour of the pupils is good. Their conduct around school and in the classroom is calm and orderly. The John Hunt Way, the
school’s code of behaviour, is well understood and respected by the pupils, who appreciate the guidance and structure that it gives them.
The dedicated staff at John Hunt work hard, support one another and are receptive to new ideas and concepts. They have an active
interest in ensuring every pupil is provided with the best education and bring a sense of humour to school life. In short, a fantastic team to
be part of.

We would love you to visit John Hunt to see all of this for yourself and to meet the wonderful team.
