THE APPLETON
SCHOOL
A SPECIALIST BUSINESS
& ENTERPRISE COLLEGE

Welcome

I am proud to be the headteacher of this Outstanding school as recognised by Ofsted following their recent inspection.

We are a mixed fully comprehensive school for students aged 11-18. We have an excellent reputation for providing high quality education and achieving outstanding exam results.

We are one of the country's leading Business and Enterprise Colleges and we take pride in the distinctive ethos this gives our school. Our main sponsor is The Arcadia Group, one of the UK's largest clothing retailers. Our partnership with them enables us to nurture the entrepreneurs of the future through an innovative and exciting curriculum.

Our school has recently gained national awards for its very high standards in the arts, its extra curricular provision for students, for staff training and for promoting a "healthy school" ethos. We have also received an International Awards for our work with schools in Uganda and Ethiopia.

We are incredibly proud of our students. We expect only the very best from them. We expect them to work hard and aim high. In return we are dedicated to developing each of them into successful, compassionate future leaders.
