What the school says...
Acorn Park is an independent, specialist day and residential school that caters for children and young people aged 4 19 years who have autism and associated difficulties. We have a deservedly good reputation with parents and placing authorities for meeting the needs of children and young people who also have moderate or severe learning difficulties, and whose behaviour can be challenging. In September 2012 we extended our provision to cater for children whose attainment is average or above average, but who need an autistic friendly environment in order to achieve their academic potential. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
We are a specialist independent day and residential school for children aged 4-19 with an autistic spectrum disorder, who hold a statement of special educational need. Our school is particularly appropriate for children and young people who require a co-ordinated and consistent programme of education and care. The school offers day, 38 week and 52 week provision in an attractive, rural setting of 30 acres of parkland. We are situated on the edge of a small village yet within easy reach of two larger towns. Our school is designed to resemble a village community, in harmony with the South Norfolk landscape. Our children enjoy the space and freedom of a peaceful school environment.
