We would like to say a fond farewell and thank you to Edward Brown, who has worked as the School Crossing Patrol Person on the junction of Huddersfield Road and High Fernley Road since 1990.

Edward's long service for Bradford Council and to the community of Wyke comes to an end on Friday 8 June 2018, when he will embark on what we hope will be a long and happy retirement, which is well earned.

We would like to thank Edward, on behalf of staff, students and parents, for his dedication to his role and for keeping the children of Wyke Manor, High Fernley and Appleton Academy safe (as well as the wider community).

Appleton Academy, as part of the Exceed Academies Trust, is committed to being transparent about how it collects and uses data in order to meet its data protection obligations under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).  If you would like further information or to view our policies on GDPR please follow the link below:


We also wrote to all parents recently regarding pupil personal data and how this is used in school in promoting the excellent work and achievements of our students.  We asked parents to complete and return a form to advise us of your preferences for how data about your child is used by Appleton Academy.  If you have not yet returned that form, can you please do so as soon as possible.  The form can be returned to Form/Class Teachers or dropped into the Main Office.

Thank you for your support. 

We would like to remind parents of Year 7 students that there will be a Parent Evening this Thursday 19 April 2018 between 5.00pm and 7.00pm.  If you have not yet confirmed appointments with staff, you can do so via the following link: https://appletonacademy.parentseveningsystem.co.uk


Appleton Academy students have recently been raising awareness of important issues such as 'period poverty' and the anniversary of the terror attack at Manchester Arena.  Please follow the link below to see these latest stories and how these issues affect both our students and the local community.



Appleton Academy is hosting an open evening on 26 April 2018, between 4.00pm and 6.00pm, for parents considering nursery places for September 2018.  We have full and part time places available in our outstanding Early Years provision (Ofsted - March 2016).

No appointment is necessary, all interested parties are welcome to simply come along on the evening and meet with staff who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.  However, if you would like more information or you are unable to attend on the evening but would still like to discuss nursery places for September, please call 01274 600550.

We look forward to welcoming you.
