Welcome to The London Acorn School – a truly unique and progressive London independent school with a clear vision to provide a creative, academic and holistic education for all our pupils. We offer an exciting and stimulating place to be, which most importantly, results in happy, curious, well-balanced and motivated children ready to engage and contribute to our ever-changing world. Our community is a multicultural and inclusive environment where children of all abilities can flourish.
We pride ourselves in our academic lessons that challenge our pupils, and in our creative and alternative curriculum which offers all children the opportunity to explore their imagination and build creative resilience and strong capability for independent work. The curriculum is unique to our school and combines Waldorf-inspired activities with Montessori and Forest School elements, together with seasonal Steiner and nature-based practical approaches. Our children thrive in all areas of the curriculum and simply love coming into school. Student achievements at their secondary destinations bear testament to the love of learning that we build here.
The warm partnerships we share between home and school are extremely strong as we agree that “it takes a village to raise a child”. By supporting the philosophy underpinning the school, families and teachers partner each other to ensure the best possible experience for child(ren) as they grow to meet their full potential.
We support that partnership by offering workshops and events throughout the year, where different aspects of our school approaches to childhood and how families can employ them successfully, tailored to their own home family culture, are explored.
Our school is an exciting place to be a part of with many opportunities to be involved and where every family can find a level of involvement where they feel comfortable.
We look forward to welcoming you!
