Deputy Headteacher

East London Independent SchoolNewham

At TCES, we know what makes an excellent school. We have extensive experience of delivering Therapeutic Education, to some of London and the Home Counties’ most complex neurodiverse children and young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs and/or Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC), and associated conditions.

At TCES we have an opportunity to support our pupils to succeed in a variety of ways and we need dedicated, passionate people who go the extra mile to make sure our pupils are enabled to overcome their barriers to learning and to be successful throughout their time with us.

Our authentic commitment to inclusion means that in our 20-year history, working with over 3,000 pupils, we have never permanently excluded a single child or young person. Since 2019 we have also never excluded a pupil for a fixed period. 

If our pupils leave a TCES school with a wide range of qualifications and accreditations based on their hard work and abilities, and can foster a positive sense of lifelong learning, then we can all feel a real sense of achievement. 

A significant part of our roles at TCES is that we must prepare our pupils for when they leave us to make and sustain long term appropriate relationships and to have an ability to manage in future groups at work, training or in further education. 

TCES offers an innovative approach to re-engaging pupils through a five-part curriculum and a socio-educational model, which has at its forefront multi-agency partnerships and solutions for the diverse and complex needs of our pupils. 

We are looking for an enthusiastic, experienced and dedicated new Deputy Headteacher for our school in East London – if you would like to find out more about the role please contact Richard Lucas at Academicis on 01223907979 / 07909905392, or email 

Closing date – 14th October

Interview Date – week commencing 18th October
