Acorn celebrates 35 years of Adventure!

We recently celebrated our 35th anniversary with colleagues past and present at a Gala, hosted by one of our former Village Managers, Ian Dutton (now Head of Commercial at Birmingham City Football Club). He threw himself whole heartedly into the event by peforming one of Acorn's favourite songs- the Acorn Hakka. 

It was a night filled with good old Acorn songs and amazing stories about staff, teachers, pupils and families who told us they have gained so much from their experiences with Acorn. We even discovered news of many Acorn marriages and babies, adding something extra special to the Acorn family company, we are so proud to be. 

Andrew Gardiner, Acorn's founder and Chair is so proud of the many staff and Party Leaders who have worked tirelessly to make Acorn the success it is today and in his speech, he thanked everyone for their contribution. "We couldn't have done it without the dedication and commitment of our staff and teachers", he said. "Those people who have gone the extra mile have really made a difference and helped Acorn grow into the oak tree it is today."
