We have a new Headmaster!
We are very pleased to announce that we have a new Headmaster, Carl McCarthy. Carl is joining us from Newlands Primary School, a community school in Hampshire where he has had much success.
Carl has worked with educators across the world and has a deep interest in creating the best learning environment for children. He also has experience working as an OFSTED inspector and is a consultant to the British Council.
As a school, we are hugely inspired and influenced by both the Steiner and Acorn methods, but we’re open to finding our own way. Carl is the right person to take our school forward and we’re delighted he is joining our community. He will start in September and we will soon hear more from him. Watch this space!
The London Acorn School is a holistic, OFSTED outstanding school for 3-14 year olds, set in a beautiful National Trust park in Southwest London. As our younger pupils get older, the school will grow, providing an upper school to the age of 18.
Small class sizes and a unique approach to education supports children’s growth into well-educated, independent and happy young adults.
We have a vibrant, diverse school community. Parents and the school work together with children’s best interests at the heart of everything we do.
