A Season of Progress

Accoutre Turns Four!
A Journey of Growth and Community

Accoutre celebrates its fourth anniversary! It’s incredible to think that what started as a group of friends brainstorming around my kitchen table has blossomed into a vibrant community. In these four short years, we’ve reached a significant milestone. From humble beginnings, Accoutre now boasts:

  • A talented team of 18 teachers
  • 4 dedicated bank staff members – with more on the way
  • A stellar administrator who keeps us sailing smoothly
  • Our very own Instagram guru
  • A committed committee that convenes quarterly
  • A group of visionary consultants infusing fresh ideas and immense value

Triumphs and Transformations

The past year has been particularly momentous, marked by milestones and new ventures:

  • We had the honour of meeting Merton’s Mayor, the charming Gill Manly.
  • Accoutre was recognised by the Merton Partnership Civic Volunteer Awards 2023, where Sandra Sinclair and I received certificates for our volunteering efforts in and beyond Merton.
  • The King’s Coronation was a historic event we celebrated by taking a day to immerse our students and staff in the live ceremony and local festivities.
  • Our Black British history sessions saw a refresh with new speakers, addressing both historical and contemporary issues, from Notting Hill Carnival to modern-day inventors, spanning past, present, and future.

Here’s to another year of progress, learning, and community spirit at Accoutre. We are 4 years old!

I am enormously proud to say we have been in operation for just over 4 years.
