Our Schools

At Acorn Park, our three Schools ensure that wherever a child sits on the autistic spectrum, their individuality is celebrated with an appropriate curriculum for progress & success.

Callum’s Story

Callum was an angry 17 year old, whose autism meant he couldn’t control his outbursts, anger or language at his previous schools.  In less than a year at Acorn Park, the specialist approach has enabled him to become a successful, confident, academic student, and build his first friendships.

In Callum’s own words:  “I can’t thank them enough for making me feel I can trust people, control my emotions and believe in myself.”

Jordan’s Story

Jordan was diagnosed with autism as a toddler, and although her Mum wanted her to stay in mainstream education she realised that eventually she would need a residential school.

She says finding Acorn Park was the best decision she made for her daughter. “She has a great time here and loves it. She’s safe, happy and moving forwards – you can’t ask for more.”

Peter’s Story

Peter has autism and other associated conditions and his family was in crisis when they accepted a place at Acorn Park. His father says he progressed more in his first year than in the previous three and the holistic approach has made his son a joy to be with.
