Appleford is a wonderful place in which to learn and to grow up. Since 1988 we have provided opportunities for boys and girls to fulfil their potential, and to develop as confident young adults. Here at Appleford you will find a caring and inspiring school, situated in open countryside in the heart of Wiltshire. Our pupils are seen as individuals and every part of their growth is encouraged and nurtured, whether this is academic success or personal development.
At Appleford we make sure that our pupils make the most of their talents and enjoy the feeling of achievement every day. Here, you will find a warm welcome where everyone feels they are part of a big, happy family.
To me, there are no ‘special needs’ children at Appleford – simply boys and girls who, with the right specialist teaching, support and encouragement can, and do, go on to great things.
By combining this belief with the traditional values of politeness and good manners, determination and a desire to succeed, Applefordians have a genuine and well-founded pride in their school.
In short, our children flourish on this beautiful site and I am continually impressed with their confident attitude to life and learning and the excellent progress they make.
I hope that what you see on this website will encourage you to visit the school for yourself. That is the best way to experience the special qualities of Appleford School and the young people who live and study here, whether as day pupils or as boarders.
I look forward to meeting you.
