Striving to Excel
Welcome to Applecroft School.
Applecroft. It’s a word that lasts a lifetime.
Our pupils at Applecroft have a strong voice. They are global citizens of the future, with dreams we take care to listen to. As young adults they’ll emerge in a decade facing vastly different ways of living and working. At Applecroft they are inspired and equipped 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, challenging learning experiences encourage our pupils to follow our motto, ‘strive to excel’.
From babies arriving in our Children’s Centre to grandparents applauding our Christmas Show they remind us of the opportunity the Applecroft School community enjoys: preparing our pupils for a lifetime. That’s the challenge that inspires our staff and parents here to keep learning too.
“It is an exciting place to learn with creative approaches to our learning. We hold numerous special events including arts weeks, sports days, year group assemblies and eagerly anticipated residential trips which include Kingswood, York and PGL.” Y6 Pupils.
“If you are lucky enough to come to this great school you will be encouraged and supported by our excellent teachers who will push you to achieve your potential.” Y6 Pupils.
“The school provides great opportunities for the children to really use their imagination and decide how they want to work, involving both pupils and parents.”
“It is the best school in Welwyn Garden City.” Y6 Pupil.
Applecroft converted to academy status on 1st March 2012.
