What is ACORNS day?


A = Accountable   C = Creative thinkers   O = open minded   R = resilient   N = networkers    S = successful


Every year we have cross curricular ACORNS days to help our students develop in a different and fun way. The aim is that all students are involved in a range of activities that enable them to access the ACORNS skills.
