We are delighted to announce a new and exciting partnership with Cognita Schools, a global leader in Independent education. 

Cognita Schools and its Active Learning Group (ALG) have chosen Acorn Adventure as their preferred partner for Multi-Activity Adventure Camps in the UK and Europe. Cognita believes that alongside academic excellence all students should develop postive character virtues and global perspective. The Cognita Active Learning programme puts character development at its heart and every outdoor learning experience undertaken by Cognita Schools will promote a positive growth mindset while also enhancing confidence, resilience and self-awareness.

Price has been listed as the number 1 priority when schools are selecting a school trip provider in a recent School Travel Forum survey, involving 60 schools.

We are delighted to announce that 90% of Acorn's schools and groups voted us `Great value for money` in 2017.

As part of the big `Learning Away` campaign for #brilliant residentials, sixty schools have been asked what makes a brilliant residential? Over 35 years, Acorn has been working closely with teachers to ensure we are always delivering #brilliantresidentials and we get some amazing feedback every year. Here’s how we deliver on what these sixty schools tell us makes a #brilliantresidential:

From the Norman invasion of England in 1066 to the D-Day landings of 1944, Normandy has played an important role in European history. With its spectacular monastery, Mont St-Michel; the Bayeux Tapestry, D-Day beaches, war memorials, magnificent rugged coastline and cultural charm, it's clear to see why many UK schools travel to Normandy every year.

Acorn values it's membership of the LOtC, which actively promotes, encourages and supports the use of places other than the classroom for teaching and learning. School trips are a great way to achieve this and there are lots of other ways too. The LOtC website is a useful platform to gain ideas to help you with this and they have also produced some interesting information about Ofsted's views about LOtC, which you may find interesting:
