Acorn is one of the most well established school and group adventure trip providers in the UK, with 35 years experience.
We have a choice of ten exciting Adventure destinations in six countries and have built up an excellent reputation for delivering safe, quality and fun adventure trips that are great value for money. We're passionate about learning outside the classroom and our activities, centre locations and accommodation options have all been carefully planned to offer you the best possible real outdoor experience at affordable prices.
All of our Adventure Centres in France, Italy, Spain, UK and India, have been selected with their locations in mind. From National Parks to the Mediterranean Sea, we are perfectly placed to offer you the best choice of activity programmes. From sailing and paddle boarding to climbing and caving, we have a trip to suit every school and group!
If you want a more personal experience, our centres are small, friendly and offer groups of 35 paying or more their own private living space and dining marquee. We pride ourselves on the safe, relaxed environments we offer every group, making things easier for teachers to manage. Pupils get so much from living in an Acorn Village and this private, sociable setting encourages a great community spirit.
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.
Acorn Adventure will work closely with ALG as well as the individual school and its lead teachers, to ensure that every trip is well-planned to maximise the outcomes and benefits to the pupils whilst also promoting skills development in a fun and safe environment.
We are in the process of creating a dedicated page on our website to welcome Cognita Schools to our exciting range of UK and overseas adventure camps. In the meantime, please explore our full website or contact us on 01384 398 870 to find out more. Let the adventure begin!
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.
Every year, we seek feedback from teachers and pupils to find out how we are doing, so we can keep on meeting expectations and be the best we can be. We work hard to keep our prices low and our programmes rich in content, so it's great to hear that we have got it right for so many of our customers this year.
Acorn's aim is for every young person to experience an overnight adventure and so we offer a range of destinations, durations, accommodation options and prices that allow every school to offer an affordable outdoor adventure residential to their pupils.
We are repeatedly told that price is the main reason teachers select us initially. Schools continue to travel with us because we are incredible value for money. Our prices are low and yet we offer quality adventure programmes with the best technical activities, in the most popular school trip locations in the UK and Europe. On top of this, Acorn has small, friendly centres that provide each school with their own accommodation and dining areas. More and more schools are tiring of large centres, filled with lots of school groups and are preferring the smaller, personal setting that Acorn Adventure centres offer.
Price is key, yes. But value for money is so much more important. With Acorn you can enjoy the full outdoor adventure experience, in your own exclusive accommodation area, at prices your pupils can afford. There is no need to compromise on your next school adventure residential.
