The company enjoys an excellent reputation for providing a high quality of care and education which has resulted in strong demand for places at its schools. Currently located at two sites in Lincolnshire, Kisimul employs over 270 staff and has over 30 local authority customers. The management team has plans to expand and develop the services at new sites throughout the East Midlands to take advantage of growing demand for the company’s specialist services.
