THRIVING, LIVELY, SUCCESSFUL CHURCH OF ENGLAND SECONDARY SCIENCE COLLEGE
Our ethos is very important to us as it means our students will develop within a caring Christian environment. Immanuel means ‘God with us’ and sums up what we believe. Our last faith inspection confirms we have a “good” faith ethos and we are outstanding at meeting the needs of all learners through our distinctive Christian character. Our most recent Ofsted inspection stated ‘a strength of the school is its equal focus on the academic, personal and social development of the students.
New chapel built on ‘pillars of faith’ opens in school
Our new purpose built chapel, a place for prayer and reflection, was opened on Tuesday 26 April by the Bishop of Bradford.
The £100 thousand pound construction, that has been years in the planning, began in September 2015. The build faced difficulties in the early stages because of uncertainty over the ground on which it was being built. However, at the official opening, the Rt Revd Dr Toby Howarth said that the foundations of the chapel were representative of the school’s Christian ethos and caring Christian environment. “What we are celebrating is bricks and mortar but it is built on a foundation of not just pillars in the ground but pillars of faith in God.”
