Hi my name is Graham Jackson and I was a student at Apley Park Boarding School between the years of 1975 and 1980. During my time at Apley I was known as Moriarty. As most of you know the original site was born in 1995 as a result of a project for my degree, and over the last sixteen years it has grown from a few pages to over two hundred pages - and is still growing! Over four hundred old boys and teachers have made contact with the site. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed material for the site.

Apley Park School was located near the villages of Norton, Stockton and Sutton Maddock, which are a few miles from the town of Bridgnorth in Shropshire.
Unfortunately due to Shropshire County Council education cuts in the eighties Apley Park School has now closed down. The last year of education was in 1987.
After Apley closed the building remained uninhabited for many years and suffered from horrendous damp problems and vandalism. The "Apley Hall Restoration Trust" then purchased Apley Hall and the surrounding buildings (Classrooms etc). The trust then started to restore the hall and surrounding buildings and eventually obtained planning permission to convert the hall into luxury flats.
In Feb 2004 the House went up for auction and was sold to developers Earlstone under the company name Apley Hall Restoration Ltd. Earlstone developed the Estate into 17 houses, apartments, and mews houses, with the House itself divided into five grand mansion houses, completed and sold in 2006-07 with the Apley Hall House incorporating the main entrance being the most expensive at £1.5 million, the others being the Library House, Georgian House, Garden House and Courtyard House. The surrounding 8,500-acre Apley Park estate is still owned, since 1868, by the Hamilton family's Apley Estate
