Options Kinsale School opened in 2007. The school is part of the Outcomes First group which seeks to provide integrated education and residential services for young people and adults with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), moderate and severe learning difficulties, and social and emotional difficulties. Options Kinsale School offers residential education and care for up to 25 pupils aged between 8 and 19 years who have complex needs and a diagnosis of ASD. The school currently has 24 pupils on roll. The majority are placed by local authorities in England. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs (SEN) or an education, health and care plan (EHCP). Most pupils have looked-after child (LAC) status and many reside in the company’s children’s homes. Most pupils are from English-speaking backgrounds. The headteacher has been in post since November 2016. The headteacher is supported by an education team that consists of a deputy headteacher, six class teachers, two part-time tutors and eight learning support assistants. The education team is supported by a clinical team that includes an occupational therapist, speech and language therapist, psychologist and art therapist. The school’s last full inspection was in 2012.
