Acorns is a quality out of school setting serving the children of Walton on Thames and the surrounding area.  We were last inspected by Ofsted in 2016 and were delighted to receive ‘Outstanding’.  We are based in a building separate to the school, and have the use of the outside school areas such as the fields, trim trails, pond and nature area. We have 3 Forest School leaders and have regular sessions. Recently we revamped our outdoor play area with a canopy, all weather turf and new play equipment. We have a great team of committed playworkers and are now looking to extend our management team by adding a second Deputy Manager to support the Manager in the daily running of the club.
