Teaching approach of the school

The learning curriculum at Acorn House balances a challenging and in-depth study of both the English and Italian curriculum, providing every student with a rich and challenging bilingual programme of studies in English and Italian language, Math, Science, History and Geography, ICT- Art and Design, Music and P.E. implemented with English and Italian Literature, Spanish language and culture, History of Art and History of Music, along with Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Technologies in KS3. Acorn house dual curriculum therefore is aimed at developing to a high level abilities, skills and knowledge in both languages. As part of our commitment to providing an international dual curriculum students are provided with the prerequisites to continue their learning in either Italian or UK education system. At Acorn House teachers of each class group and department work closely together to ensure that links are formed between both language curriculum, guaranteeing solid learning foundations in all subject areas. Through the comprehensive studies of both curriculum requirements (Italian Ministry of Education 2012 and The UK National Curriculum new requirements 2014) the identified proficiencies and abilities have been successfully incorporated and linked within Acorn House dual curriculum. This allows for a unique combination of learning content and specific attention to cross curricular learning opportunities, in order to suit the diverse needs of learning styles of the students and to support the interconnections of the knowledge, and ensure the unity of its teaching. Through participation in work relating to the programme of study, pupils will also have opportunities to engage in discussion and undertake activities which fulfil the objectives of specific learning project experiences. Through student-centered teaching and inquiry-based learning the students are stimulated and supported to achieve their full potential. Each student at Acorn House is expected to be motivated and dedicated to the challenges of our learning path.
