TCES North West London

We are an ‘Outstanding’ school, with Outstanding awarded in ALL categories in our last two inspections (Ofsted Inspection Report, February 2017 and November 2019). We provide full-time education for Key Stage 2 to 5 pupils from London Local Authorities.

Our school provides education for neurodiverse pupils presenting with SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health) needs, and for children with an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and associated conditions. For every pupil we put in place individualised programmes  which support their transition into the school environment.

The education is  provided in ‘state of the art’ premises in west London. The school was formally opened by Professor Lord Winston in January 2012 and includes a science lab (named after Lord Winston) as well as a large number of specialist classrooms including an art, counselling and therapy room, a food technology kitchen, a sensory room, and a large gym/assembly hall. 

Our pupils are provided with opportunities and support to develop self-esteem, interpersonal and social skills as well as to make positive choices in respect of their behaviour both in and out of school. We believe they will become successful members of society through the knowledge, values and thinking skills learnt in the classroom and school environment.

OFSTED: We are an ‘outstanding’ school

Pupils excel at this school, both academically and socially. Pupils with complex learning needs join the school after multiple school placements. Most pupils have gaps in their education and some have a history of permanent exclusions. The school’s ‘community values’, such as hard work and high expectations, are routinely upheld. The induction programme enables pupils to adapt quickly to school life.

Pupils respond well to the ‘never give up’ attitude they receive from caring staff. Passionate leaders and committed staff ensure that pupils are safe and busy. Pupils learn life skills and how to stay healthy. Pupils enjoy off-site sporting activities such as swimming, athletics and football.
