School Description

Options Trent Acres is a small, special independent day school located in the rural village of Kings Bromley, Staffordshire. It is part of the Options Autism (4) Group, a subsidiary of the parent company, Outcomes First. The Department for Education’s (DfE) ‘Get Information about Schools’ website does not record the name of a proprietor. However, the inspector saw evidence that the DfE had acknowledged the change of the proprietor Inspection report: Options Trent Acres School, 16–18 October 2018 Page 9 of 12 to ‘Options for Autism (4) Ltd.’ in an email communication received from the DfE in August 2017. Since the time of the last standard inspection, the school has changed its name from Hillcrest Oaklands College to Option Trent Acres. The school is housed in refurbished former farm buildings with access via security gates. The premises consist of several well-appointed small classrooms, a science laboratory, an art room, a medical room, an independent living (room) space, toilets and a small indoor assembly hall. There is an outdoor gym and extensive grounds, including equestrian facilities, gardens and an animal husbandry area. At the time of the last standard inspection, the school was offering integrated care, education and clinical services to girls aged between 12 and 19 with a range of learning and social needs. All pupils left the school during the summer term 2017. The school was closed to pupils for just over a term before reopening in January 2018. This followed a material change when the school changed its age range and became co-educational. The school also changed in terms of the type of pupils’ needs that it catered for. Now, pupils admitted include those with autism spectrum disorder, complex needs and learning difficulties. Pupils are placed at the school by a range of local authorities. The school’s last full standard inspection was in January 2016. The school had an unannounced progress monitoring inspection in September 2016. The school was last inspected in December 2017 for a material change to the school’s age range to eight to 18 years, and to become co-educational.
