Alderman Knight School
Welcome to Alderman Knight School
Alderman Knight is a very successful and well-established special school for children aged 7 to 19 with moderate and additional learning difficulties, complex needs and Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The majority of our pupils live within the Tewkesbury and North Cotswolds area but the school is also able to take pupils from outside the local area as the need arises.
We are very proud to have been rated as an Outstanding school by Ofsted on our last three inspections giving Alderman Knight an excellent reputation. With a highly skilled and dedicated staff team we work together to ensure all children experience an exciting curriculum, tailored to meet their individual needs. As a result, there is a safe, caring and supportive ethos across the school that enables the children to be happy at school and achieve well in their learning.
The school buildings provide a carefully designed learning environment for our pupils, allowing them to access amazing facilities across the school, from specialist classrooms including a life skills flat to a sensory room and outdoor play equipment. The school has been further developed over recent years with the addition of our Post 16 Centre in 2016 and Knight View in September 2021.
