Alderman Knight is a maintained special school for children and young people with a range of needs, aged 7 to 19. 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 opened in September 2021. The school has approximately 220 Pupils & Students and 100 staff.
Everyone at Alderman Knight works exceptionally hard as we are all committed to ensure the provision offered gives our young people an enriched and extended curriculum, tailored to their individual needs. Each of our pupils and students are supported to achieve their learning potential as well as develop their self-esteem and confidence.
The environment we have created allows them to feel safe and happy to learn, and as a result they flourish. Alderman Knight School is a very special place to work. If you feel you would like to be part of our team and could bring additional and different expertise as well as passion, enthusiasm and a desire to make a real difference to our community, we would welcome your application.
