Knockevin is a special educational school which caters for pupils with severe and profound learning difficulties from the age of 3 to 19. Knockevin school is situated in the Downpatrick area. We have also have an Early Years Centre in Dundrum.

Our Aim


The main aim of the school is to provide a supportive educational environment where pupils feel secure, at their ease and thrive both educationally, socially and spiritually. We seek to help pupils achieve their maximum level of independence in preparation for life when they leave school.
