Alderman Knight Community Special School

When there is a high demand for special school places in Gloucestershire children sometimes attend schools out of the county or in the independent sector. These often result in increased journey times and additional costs.

The county council, with the support of Alderman Knight School, expanded the school 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.

In 2020 and 2021 the number of places available at the school increased by 30 to 208. Gloucestershire County Council provided the school with additional facilities to accommodate the extra pupils through an impressive and purpose built new building.
