KWS Educational Services are an independent education provision for students with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties. KWS has full school status, providing bespoke education packages to young people ranging from 11 to 19 years of age. Many of the young people referred to KWS are subject to statements of educational needs and ECH Plans; most are subject to, or at risk of permanent exclusion. KWS strives to promote and support the physical, emotional and social well-being of young people who are disaffected with education and society in general.
KWS has two sites in both Bedford and Luton and offers a range of courses which include GCSE in core subjects, AQA Unit awards and other vocational qualifications. KWS also offers 1:1 home or community tuition when young people are unable to attend a school environment. Referrals are made to KWS by schools and local education authorities and young people’s advice and guidance professionals. KWS currently supports children and young people from Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire, Luton Borough, Cambridgeshire County Council, Hertfordshire County Council and Milton Keynes.
