Acorns School opened in 1997. It is a small independent special school for day pupils. The school is registered for 40 boys and girls aged from five to 17 years who have significant social,
emotional and mental health difficulties. The school does not provide sixth-form education.
The school is part of the Keys Childcare Ltd group, who own a number of other schools in England. The school has no religious emphasis or affiliation. All of the pupils who attend the school have been referred by their local authority. Currently, there are 23 pupils on roll from 13 different local authorities. Nearly all pupils have a statement
of special educational needs or disability, or an education, health and care plan. Eleven pupils are in the
care of their local authority.
Nearly all pupils are of White British background. The school aims to `educate in an emotionally healthy environment' by providing `a holistic education that
will provide them (students) with learning opportunities, which target their specific individual educational needs.' It further emphasises that it `will help these children and young people to achieve their academic and personal potential and hence to help equip them with the skills they need to enjoy a full, well
integrated and satisfying life.'
