Step by step, day by day, we build incredible futures. 

Every journey begins with a small step. It sounds easy, but some people need some extra help before they can stride out on their own.

At Acorn Education, we support children and young people to take those early steps. Through our schools and residential homes we tailor our care to each individual, empowering them and their families to enjoy fulfilling, rewarding lives.

Our vision is simple yet powerful: to build incredible futures for vulnerable children, young people and adults in the UK by empowering them to be happy and make their way in the world.

We’re leaders in our field

Since our launch in 2005, we’ve built a reputation for delivering the highest standards of education and care with unmatched reach, capacity and expertise. Maintaining the quality of our provision is one of our top priorities, with our independent quality committee monitoring our services on an ongoing basis and constantly looking for innovative and practical ways in which we can improve and excel.
