What says..

There is a strong and enthusiastic following for debating, and indeed when we visited, the debating society were about to discuss the motion ‘why homework should be scrapped.’ (Sadly, we couldn’t hang around to see the outcome). School does a very good job of involving parents.

What the school says...

Immanuel College is a school characterised by academic excellence, expert pastoral care and inspiring Jewish education. Immanuel College offers each and every one of its pupils the nurturing environment and individual attention required to maximise their academic potential.

At Immanuel College, small class sizes promote confident learning and rapid academic progress. We take pleasure in the fact, in the past 3 years, that 95% of students leaving the school after Advanced Level go on to their first choice of university.

The foundation of Immanuel's academic excellence is the nurturing approach to pupils provided by our expert and exceptionally attentive pastoral system, which supports the personal, social and academic development of each pupil. The close relationship between teachers, pupils and parents ensures that pupils' strengths are built upon and needs for their individual development addressed.

Our pupils feel at home in a school founded on Jewish values and learning. By the end of their time at Immanuel College, they not only are confident and well qualified academically, but have also attained a deep understanding of their faith and of the place of Jewry in the modern world.

At Immanuel College we believe that Jewish and secular learning shed light on one another, that Israel is central to the destiny of the Jewish people, and that girls and boys should have the same opportunities for Jewish learning.
