About Alderman Knight School

Alderman Knight is a maintained special school for children and young people with a range of needs, aged 7 to 19 that means they have been unable to thrive in a mainstream setting. During the last 10 years the school has undergone a complete new build for all phases. The final phase of our school building will be complete by September 2021. This will enable the school to accommodate up to 220 pupils and students with 100 support and teaching staff.

The school is for children and young people whose primary needs have been identified as:

• Communication and Interaction, and

• Cognition and Learning

They may also have associated complex learning needs and this results in a wide attainment range. In Key Stage 2 pupils are generally working within the higher P levels and KS1 age related expectations. However, across the secondary phase attainment can reach KS3 age related expectations and at KS4 pupils achieve a wide range of accreditations including Entry Levels, Level 1 and Level 2 qualifications and GCSEs. In KS5, students have the opportunity to study at a higher level and extend the range of accreditations they have in preparation for colleges courses, apprenticeships of employment. Some students in KS5 have the opportunity to study Level 3 qualifications through attending classes at Tewkesbury Secondary school.
