We have been made aware that there are stories circulating on social media, which suggest that the Academy is not open today (Monday 31 October 2016).

We would like to reiterate that the Academy is open as normal to all children and students. 

Appleton Academy has a system in place to inform parents via text message if the Academy is closed for any reason i.e. during extreme weather and this will be supported by messages on the website and via local media.  Unless you receive official information from the Academy, we would advise parents to discount all rumour on social media in these instances or to call us if you have any doubt.

The Academy's term dates are also available on this website and have been distributed to you.  There are currently no further scheduled closures of the Academy until the end of term on Friday 16 December 2016.

The Appleton Academy Local Governing Body have approved an increase to the Year 7 published admission number (PAN).  The PAN will increase to 180 on a temporary basis from September 2017 with a view to a permanent increase effective September 2018.

If you have any questions or concerns about this decision, please email info@appletonacademy.co.uk.

The Academy will be hosting an open evening on Wednesday 28 September 2016 for all parents considering Appleton for children joining Year 7 in September 2017.

The open evening will take place between 6pm and 8pm with the Principal hosting parents at 6.15pm and 7.15pm.  This is an opportunity to tour the Academy, meet with staff and current students and ask any questions you may have.

The evening is open to all interested parties.  However, if you are unable to attend and would like to make alternative arrangements to visit, please contact us on 01274 600550.

The Academy will be closed to all children and students on Monday 3 October 2016 for INSET.  School re-opens as normal on Tuesday 4 October 2016.

We hope that you have had an enjoyable and restful summer break and we look forward to welcoming children and young people back to school on Tuesday 6 September 2016.
