The Academy will be holding an open evening on Thursday 21 September 2017, between 5.30pm and 7.30pm, for all parents and students considering Appleton Academy for September 2018.

The evening will be an opportunity to meet with current staff and students, ask questions, tour the building and facilities and attend an address with the Principal (the Principal's address will take place at 5.30pm and 6.15pm).
