What apple trees do you recommend for a school?
Hi, I am looking to plant several plant fruit trees for a school (probably 3) to replace 3 large holly trees that need to be removed. I was hoping you could advise on a good variety to choose.
I did want English heritage varieties - I was originally looking at apples, but I am open to other suggestions.

Mid and late-season apple trees are probably the best choice for a school orchard. How tall do you want them to get in the longer term?
I would avoid early-season apples and most plums, because they tend to ripen during the summer holidays.
