Education

Within Options there are six independent schools registered by Ofsted and Estyn as Good or Outstanding for young people with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC), associated complex needs and behaviours that challenge.

We believe that education should be individually tailored and delivered in a variety of environments, with a curriculum that encourages the development of communication, social and life skills as well as academic achievement. Each student’s individual learning abilities, requirements and academic progression are consistently monitored to ensure that support remains proactive, learning opportunities are maximised and every individual achievement is celebrated.
