About Acorn House College

Acorn House College was founded in 1999 as an independent school in West London with a particular focus on the Sciences.

The London independent college provides a traditional and academically rigorous learning environment to inspire students to aim and achieve highly. Ideally located in the centre of Southall, Acorn House College is proudly rooted in the community, with generations of families being current or past students.

When a student joins Acorn House College, we work closely with them to identify at what academic level they are performing and what they would like to achieve.

Our teachers are all subject-specialists, united by a passion for participatory and engaging learning. The benefits to our students are unmistakable, improvement in grade performance among our students being unparalleled among our local competitors. 


Acorn House offers two-year, one-year and one-term GCSEs and A Levels in a wide range of subjects, as well as providing intensive A Level Retake Courses with great success.
