About Us


"Preparing young people for their world in their time"



The Acorn Education Trust was formed in August 2014 to create a local solution to a national strategy. Through close collaboration and a shared vision we believe each school will achieve great things while retaining their individual identity. Underpinning this close collaboration is a strong belief in our core purpose.

Every Acorn school will thrive, as we will ensure the 5 strands of Acorn are evident in all that we do.


Active and Visible Leadership

Care, Support and Challenge

Opportunities for all

Respect, Recognition and Resilience

Needs of all are Paramount
