School Description

Pupils are happy and safe at the London Acorn School. They like their school and their teachers. Teachers encourage pupils to be creative and expressive. They support pupils’ understanding of the world and where they sit as individuals within it. The school makes regular use of the neighbouring parkland. Pupils know the names of the trees surrounding their school. The youngest children visit the ‘Kinde Tree’ daily. This is a cluster of trees where they play creatively together and recall what they have previously learned. Adults make sure that pupils safely enjoy the outdoor environment that surrounds them. Leaders purposefully promote an ‘unhurried approach’ to academic work. However, they also understand that pupils need the knowledge and skills to succeed at secondary school and beyond. Recently, leaders introduced changes to the school’s curriculum. There is more to do to ensure that pupils build the knowledge and skills they need in all areas of the curriculum ready for the next stage in their education. Pupils behave well. They are considerate of each other inside classrooms, around the school and outdoors. Pupils know what bullying is and what to do if it should occur. Adults take effective action to resolve any issues should they arise.

“Secure academic journey with LOVE”


Both my children have been at TLAS from their very early years - they are now aged 5 and 7. As a gay family we really value the inclusive, progressive, welcoming atmosphere. The school is founded on LOVE :-) As educators ourselves we also highly value the Steiner based but innovative and progressive pedagogic model. It is evidenced based and proving to be very effective at delivering really high, unhurried, academic achievements for both our girls - No hot housing for our children thank you! just wholistic, child centred, loving, personalised and very secure learning journeys! A gem of a school that our family would highly recommend.
“A school I'm sure my kids will look fondly back on”


The school delivers on its promise to provide a purposeful, meaningful education that will nourish the children's creativity and install a lifelong love of learning. Key to this is that the school is a stimulating yet emotionally supportive space and offers a fantastic range of learning both indoors and in nature. In addition to the usual academic subjects (maths, english, music, language etc.) they do fantastic activities like woodland crafts, handwork (textiles) and woodwork which the kids love
“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.
