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.
Post 16 students visited the Gurdwara Sabha Singh as part of their Post 16 Religious Education provision. The students shared a langar meal with their Sikh hosts then spent time touring the Gurdwara and learning about Sikh beliefs and identity. The students found the visit fascinating and were keen to learn all about another faith group in our city. Students will be decorating the headwear they wore with their reflections about the visit.
Rosa Parks bus visits Immanuel College
The Rosa Parks bus visited Immanuel College on 21st October. Year 8 students boarded the bus with tickets to learn all about segregation in 1950s America and what Rosa Parks did to stand up for what she believed in. The students were segregated based on their tickets and reflected on how this felt with the help of an actor playing Rosa Parks. It left students with lots to reflect on and many felt strongly about the importance of equality and the principle of standing up for what is right.
