Aside from giving me a fantastic all-round education and getting me into a really interesting arts degree, Acorn has given me a sense of adventure and self-sufficiency that I know I will use throughout my life.
I loved Acorn because it was a place where I was allowed to be 100% myself. I was always encouraged to be an individual, and having finished my education at the school I can now see just how beneficial that was for me.
One of my best memories of Acorn would have to be our trip to Romania when we experienced a very different culture, learned about simple off-grid living and went walking in the snow in the Carpathian Mountains. I used to be a very nervous person who was afraid to step outside of my comfort zone, but thanks to Acorn I have gained the confidence to think and travel independently.
