Acton Academy Durham is a new independent school founded as an extension of Our PlayHouse.
Acton is fundamentally different from traditional schools. No bells ring, and there are no lectures. You will never find us “teaching to the test.” We don’t apply the traditional methods of education involving, lectures, homework, or standardized testing.
Students are in charge of their own learning. Our model supports self directed learning and high levels of achievement. This approach is supported by the latest in technology and cognitive science. At Acton, our students learn in collaborative classrooms of multi-age learners, and our flexible approach challenges each student with their own differentiated learning plan and inspires them through real-world projects and experiences.
Acton’s commitment is to facilitate each and every student in their pursuits of academic excellence, and then equipping them with the skills, experiences, and tools to passionately pursue and use their abilities in a way that brings them joy and changes the world.
