North West London Independent School

Rated Outstanding by Ofsted, NWLIS is a TCES Group school, providing LA funded day-school education for pupilsaged 7-18 years whose Social, Emotional or Mental Health (SEMH) needs or Autism Spectrum Condition has made it difficult for them to achieve success in a mainstream school.

Pupils will often have additional undiagnosed learning needs, Speech, Language and Communication needs (SLCN) or sensory needs, which create a complex set of barriers to learning that must be addressed before the pupil can settle into education.

Pupils attending North West London Independent School often need highly personalised learning programmes and can remain for Post 16 programmes of study, specialising in developing independence, preparation for adult life and life
after school (including study at college or preparation for the world of work).

Alongside our day-schools, TCES Group’s Create Service offers therapeutic education, delivered through a casecoordination model, to pupils who present (or are at) significant risk to themselves or others. This risk means pupils cannot be educated in a school setting. It may be that this is a temporary situation or the pupil may be returning from a residential therapeutic, out of county placement. Create is a parallel service to our day-schools.
