Achieving Excellence


At The Appleton School, we value the inclusive history of the school, which stretches back to the establishment of the first comprehensive schools in Britain in the 1960s. This still provides an inspiration for us and sits alongside our absolute commitment to provide the best for our community in the 21st century.

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of this Good school as recognised by Ofsted following their recent inspection. The Appleton School offers a fantastic opportunity for children and young people to learn and develop. We see ourselves as a community that nurtures individual excellence. We are a mixed fully comprehensive school for students aged 11-18 and are committed to providing the best possible foundations for adult life.
