About TCES Group

TCES Group
provides authentic, therapeutic education for young people between the ages of 7-19 years with SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health) needs  or an Autistic Spectrum Condition.

Our independent day-schools can be found in North West London (East Acton), East London (Newham) and Essex (Clacton). Since 2000, we have delivered an industry-leading package of education, health and care, in high-quality, small-group education settings where a high ratio of adults to pupils enables young people to engage with learning.

Our specialist service, Create (a parallel service to each of our day-schools) educates young people with multiple overlapping and complex needs who need more intensive adult support (mostly 1:1) in a range of non-school settings which include our Therapeutic Hubs (Custom House and Essex).

Our highly-skilled, multi-disciplinary teams help transform pupils’ perception of their own strengths and abilities. Our safe, nurturing and inspiring environments help pupils settle to learning and thrive.

We never give up. In 20 years, we’ve educated more than 3000 pupils, with no permanent exclusions.
