A NEW GENERATION OF LEARNING
Acorn House has been providing quality education for children since 1999. We are an English-speaking international association with mother-tongue highly qualified teachers, and pride ourselves on being an inclusive schooling system which supports children according to their needs. The school is also affiliated with primary schools and teacher training centres in the UK and in Italy, enabling us to keep up-to-date with curriculum and standards issues. We also provide a deep immersion into the Italian school system and culture, by following a stimulating bilingual English/ Italian curriculum that is developed around both curriculum requirements. Our children attend yearly government exams, in order to allow families the freedom of choice amongst two different learning paths, and support any possible sudden change that parents may encounter due to international work mobility and relocation. The foundations of learning and the security of independence that we support from an early age permeate through to all levels of ability and learning for each child. We coordinate a dual curriculum programme and learning activities with one another, in order to prepare children for their passage into the next key stage level of learning. We care for the happiness, health and confidence of each of our students, encouraging each child to build a positive self-image.
AHI offers an innovative and dynamic learning programme covering Early Years KS1, KS2 and more recently KS3. The decision to extend the work done in these first 15 years at Acorn House allowed us to cover the learning itinerary progressively and continuously from 2 to 14 years old, in line with the recent Italian National Educational Guidelines, facilitating the link with the second educational cycle.
We have been a RISA AFFILIATE MEMBER since 2005.
