Applecroft. It’s a word that lasts a lifetime.
Our pupils at Applecroft are global citizens of the future, with dreams we take care to listen to. They have a strong voice. As young adults they’ll emerge in a decade facing vastly different ways of living and working. While they're here, we aim to inspire and equip them to unleash their potential.
Inclusion is at the heart of what we do, valuing everyone and inspiring them through a vast range of learning opportunities. Inspirational and exciting, their challenging school experiences encourage them to follow our motto, ‘Striving to Excel’
With babies arriving in our Children’s Centre to grandparents applauding our Christmas show, we're reminded of the opportunity the Applecroft School community enjoys: preparing our pupils for a lifetime.
That’s the challenge that inspires staff and parents here to keep learning too.
