School Description

The London Acorn School is an independent school for boys and girls aged three to 14 years. There are 55 pupils on roll. In total, 31 children attend the kindergarten. Just over one in 10 pupils has additional learning needs. None has a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care (EHC) plan. Currently, there are very few key stage 3 pupils on roll. Two thirds of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds, with the remainder being White British. Inspection report: The London Acorn School, 21–23 November 2017 Page 8 of 11 The school is owned by The London Acorn School CIC which consists of three directors. The school’s curriculum is based on the national curriculum and a variety of educational approaches. The school was last inspected in January 2014, when it was judged to be outstanding. The school meets the independent school standards for what it must publish on its website. The school does not use any off-site training for pupils. The headteacher took up her appointment in July 2017, having previously been the deputy headteacher. The school aims to ‘create the necessary space and structures to support the growth of balanced, well-educated, creative individuals. Each child’s best interests lie at the heart of everything the school does’.

The London Acorn School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Great small friendly school”
Brilliant – a lovely, small and friendly school. The teaching is great and my children are very happy. They have made great progress at their work too. It sounds alternative as the children only start lessons aged 6.5 and are playing in Kindergarten before this. Actually this isn't so unusual in other countries and the curriculum is carefully planned so pupils are at a similar level to state school peers by the age of 11. It works well – the evidence is how well my children are doing and OFSTED were very impressed too. There is a long established sister school in Gloucestershire. The children are so happy and spend time outside playing every day, doing brilliant art and music lessons and sports like sailing. Why isn't every school like this one?
“Wonderful school”
Wonderful school. I have 2 children there. It is so friendly and the children want to go every day. They are making really good academic progress. The music, art and nature studies are great here too. There is nothing we don't like.
