The London Acorn School is nestled in a rose garden alongside a meandering stream, situated in the grounds of Morden Hall Park. It’s an idyllic setting for an alternative education in London. Our small class sizes, nurturing environment and holistic style allows children to develop the skills needed for a changing modern world: critical thinking, creativity, teamwork and emotional intelligence, in addition to academic excellence.
The London Acorn School has a broad thematic approach to its curriculum with a rich blend of subjects, taking inspiration from different pedagogies, such as Steiner Waldorf education as well as the National Curriculum. There is no one educational ‘truth’; however, at The London Acorn School we endeavour to ensure that our pupils receive a balanced education that excites and inspires. On a typical day, maths and literacy will be studied in the morning, followed by humanities, languages or science before lunch, with art, drama, music, sport, woodwork or woodland craft enjoyed in the afternoon.
In tandem with many educational systems worldwide, The London Acorn School delays the start of formal education until the age of six, focusing on the social and emotional wellbeing of our youngest pupils. The fostering of imagination, creativity, curiosity and the freedom to be children, is at the heart of our school’s philosophy in our early years provision.
