    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

    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"
