The School Catchment Area covers the villages of Appleton Wiske, East and West Rounton and Picton. Coach transport for those children living over two miles away is provided by the County Council.
Parents living outside the catchment area, who wish to know more about the school, or feel they may wish their child to be admitted here, are welcome to contact the school. An appointment will then be made for them to visit and talk with the head teacher. We are able to accept children from outside our catchment area providing that we have spare places. We can give you information about our numbers when you visit us.
Appleton Wiske is an historic village, incorporating a modern housing development. There is a thriving community spirit and several on-going projects, which have provided a village hall, a minibus, playing fields, cricket squares, all weather courts and a 5-a-side pitch.
The primary school is situated on the southern outskirts of Appleton Wiske with an open outlook over the fields and hambleton hills. The building, opened in 1983, has 3 classrooms, a hall, the library / ICT Suite, kitchen, staffroom, offices, cloakrooms and entrance hall. There are two playgrounds, a playing field and landscaped gardens. There is also an outdoor classroom, pond and our ‘wildlife’ area which was designed by the children and built by parents.
