Alderman Knight Community Special School

There is an increasing demand in Gloucestershire for special school places, which means these children sometimes have to go to schools out of the county or to independent schools when there aren’t places available locally.

The county council, with the support of Alderman Knight School, want to expand this provision to make sure more children have the opportunity to go to school close to where they live and to ensure the places are available where there is the most demand.

The number of places at the school will increase by 30 in total from 178 to 208; increasing by 20 places this year and by a further 10 places from September 2021.

Gloucestershire County Council will be providing the school with additional facilities to accommodate the extra pupils who will join the school over the next two years and the school is working closely with the council and the architects on plans for an impressive and purpose built new building.
