Acorns and Oaks Academy began in Abacha Road, GRA as a crèche and nursery school in 2011. In 2013, we added a primary section and moved to our new site at 11 Ambrose Ogbonna Avenue, Off Stadium Road, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Our regular class size of 10 children (with a maximum of 12) supports individualised attention for each of our children. Keeping in mind our mission statement of “Fostering a love for learning”, Acorns and Oaks provides a rigorous curriculum that combines the IPC with a British and Nigerian curriculum to give the children a rich international minded education with a Nigerian identity. We cater to children from ages one (1) to eleven (11).
Our primary school classes are subject-based. The children rotate classrooms learning from teachers who are specialised in the subject that they teach. This ensures that the children will be getting the most in-depth and immersive experience from every subject.
We understand that academics alone are not the total child. We offer a variety of after school programs that allow for a host of talents to be expressed. We encourage creativity and learning outside of class through our many excursions and extra-curricular activities and events.
We are a member of the prestigious Council of British International School (COBIS) – an organisation that provides quality assurance for member school and delivers high quality conferences, development programmes to members. As a COBIS member school, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults. All applicants to our school must be willing to undergo child protection screening, including checks with past employers as well as a police check.
