The Academy is sending a letter home to all parents and carers regarding an incident that occurred yesterday afternoon at the end of the school day.  The letter can be viewed here:

Letter to Parents and Carers - Incident 21 March 2018

We would like to reassure all parents, carers and students that this incident is being investigated by the police, supported by the Academy and is being treated with the utmost seriousness.  If you were present at school at the time that this occurred, we hope you have not been too alarmed and share your concerns about the behaviour of this group who instigated this incident but who are not connected with Appleton Academy. 

If you would like to discuss the matter further or you have evidence or information about what occurred that can assist the police in their investigation, please email: or call 01274 600550.

Thank you for your support.

The Academy will be hosting Parent Evenings for parents of children in all Primary classes and year groups between Monday 19 and Wednesday 21 March 2018.  To book your appointment, please click on the link below:

Unfortunately, due to the current absence of the class teacher for 3SM, we will not be able to arrange meetings for parents of children in this group.  If you are a parent of a child in 3SM, we apologise for the inconvenience and we will be in touch with you in the very near future to make specific arrangements for you to meet with staff to discuss your child's progress.

The Academy will be closing at 12.30pm on Wednesday 28 February 2018 due to a deteriorating weather forecast.  Unfortunately, the text system to alert parents is not currently operating and so we cannot inform you in the normal way.

Please ensure that you keep checking the website for further updates on arrangements for the rest of the week.

The Year 10 Parent Evening will be taking place on Thursday 15 March 2018.  This will be followed by the Options Evening for Years 8 and 10 students on Tuesday 20 March 2018  If you have not yet booked your appointments with your child's teachers for these events, please follow the link below:
