TCES National Online School shortlisted for ‘specialist provision of the year'

TCES National Online School was shortlisted for 'Specialist Provision of the Year' in the prestigious National TES Awards. 

Rounding off a stunning six months for TCES National Online School, today (Friday 3rd May) our online special school has been shortlisted for Specialist Provision of the Year in the prestigious national TES Awards. 

Dubbed the ‘Oscars of education’, the TES awards recognise the very best teachers and schools from UK schools and settings. 

TCES National Online School Headteacher Kirsten Roy says: ‘In December we were named as the very first online special school in the country to achieve the Department for Education’s online education quality mark. Now, less than six months later, the quality of our provision and the incredible impact we’re having with students who are unable to attend school in person, has been recognised in these national awards. It makes me very proud of the team who work so hard to ensure complex and vulnerable children with SEND are getting the education they deserve.’ 

TCES Founder and CEO Thomas Keaney says: ‘To be shortlisted in the Specialist Provision of the Year category is a great achievement for TCES National Online School and, I believe, signals a healthy shift in the way online education is viewed by the sector. Over the last year, TCES National Online School has proved that attending school online can be a high-quality solution for some children, not a short-term, poor relation of onsite provision. Well done to the whole TCES National Online School team for the shortlisting and fingers crossed for 21st June!’

A massive congratulation to Aurora Hanley School for winning the Specialist Provision of the Award. It was a pleasure to be surrounded by so many people who are passionate about supporting children to thrive and excel in education.
