Appleby Grammar School Technology College is a Foundation co-educational comprehensive school, which caters for students in the 11-19+ age range. It has a distinguished history, having originated from a Chantry school. The first known references to the school date from the 13th Century. The Grammar School Charter was granted by Queen Elizabeth in 1574.
Through its ancient foundation, the school has the support of several trust funds, the main trusts being :
The Whitehead Trust - to support Science Education at the school.
The Fawcett Trust - offering scholarships to students who proceed to degree level education.
Through the school's connection with Queen's College, Oxford (which still nominates one of the Foundation governors) Appleby students who proceed to that college are able to apply for Hastings or Eaglesfield scholarships.
