The Complete Education Solution (TCES) schools are registered with the Department for Education as 'Other Independent Special Schools' and are inspected by the regulatory body called the Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted). The inspection assesses our schools against the Independent School Standards and the Ofsted standards. We are inspected, as are all schools in England, under the Education Inspection Framework. The outcome of each school’s most recent Ofsted report, along with download links, can be accessed below.
Since we opened TCES North West London in 2008 and TCES East London in 2009, we have had 100% (a total of 10) ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted inspections. That is a record of consistent high quality that we are very proud of.
TCES North West London
TCES North West London was most recently inspected in March 2022. Ofsted graded it as ‘Good’, with 'Outstanding' in two standards.
Prior to this, TCES North West London received an 'Outstanding' rating in their previous inspection in 2019.
One pupil, speaking for many, told inspectors, ‘Because of this school and the time taken by staff to understand our needs, we have been given the opportunity to succeed.’
Leaders have ensured that the curriculum is ambitious for all pupils. They do not see pupils’ special educational needs and/or disabilities as a barrier to success.
TCES East London
An Ofsted inspection held from 15-17 November 2022 judged TCES East London as ‘Good’, with particular mention of the school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare described as 'Outstanding'.
The personal development and welfare of pupils is a strength of the school. Staff work effectively with therapists and external agencies to support pupils. As a result, most make strong social and emotional progress from their starting points.
Leaders provide rich opportunities for pupils to develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally. Consequently, pupils respect different beliefs and are well prepared for life in modern Britain.
