• Welcome
    Thank you for taking the time to find out about us. We pride ourselves on being a friendly and open school that offers a high quality education for all our children in a safe, happy and caring environment.
  • Curriculum
    The learning curriculum at Acorn House balances a challenging and in-depth study of both the English and Italian curriculum, providing every student with a rich and challenging bilingual programme of studies.
  • Mission and philosophy
    Acorn House believes that every child has a right to the best education possible and aims to develop both intellect and character, nurturing the development of conscientious and responsible global citizens, as well as life-long learners.
  • Educational Trips
    Learning outside the classroom is about raising achievements through an organised, powerful approach to learning in which direct experience is of prime importance. This is not only about what we learn but importantly how and where we learn

What people say

  • Lidia Schlosser
    "Teachers belonging to both curricula show excellent team-work skills and children are supported to grow and reach their maximum potential not only academically but also emotionally and socially"
  • Simona Ponzi
    At Acorn House both the academic and educational system as a whole works really well, students learn and study a lot, but at the same time they also carry out many stimulating activities that help nurture their curiosity and attention, and therefore further aid their learning"
  • Dunja Crusen
    "My son Leo found in your school such a beautiful, caring, nurturing and loving environment. Teachers and assistants are all wonderful, and we are very grateful that Leo was able to grow and have fun at your school."
  • Cristina Ferilli
    "Acorn House offers great attention to every single student taking into account each diverse personality. Children learn to collaborate and understand the importance of helping others. Thanks to this year 5 students grew very close to each other. The Head teacher, the teachers and all the staff make Acorn House a great place for students to grow."
