Acorn House College was inspected by ISI, who inspect independent schools on behalf of the Department for Education, in February 2020. The school was found to be compliant with all the independent school standards.
Some of the highlights of the report include:
“The most motivated pupils achieve ambitions levels of attainment and pursue the next phase of their education with confidence.”
“The proprietors have secured and supported high quality tutorial style teaching provision for the pupils which has resulted in a significant improvement in their attainment grades.”
“Many pupils show good levels of knowledge, skills and understanding in their chosen fields of study.”
“Most pupils develop strong self-knowledge, self-esteem and resilience during their time in the college.”
“For more able and motivated pupils, the levels are high particularly in their preferred disciplines, particularly strong, but not solely in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subjects.”
“The small class size gives students the confidence to experiment with guidance and regular constructive feedback from the teacher.”
“During their time at the college, pupils develop confidence and are able to interact well and work with others.”
Whilst the judgements made by ISI for the quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievement and the quality of the pupils’ personal development are ‘sound’, we can assure you that we are developing a robust action plan to help us improve the quality of the provision on an on-going basis.
