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.
On Thursday 25 June, Year 11 students had an amazing night at our annual school Prom held at Hollins Hall, Baildon. Over 150 students attended and both staff and students had a fantastic time receiving some fabulous feedback from the hotel!
Top winners on the night were Jack Emptage & Olivia Mennell our Prom King & Prom Queen. Christian Soda & Jodie Ingall took home the titles of Best Dressed Male & Best Dressed Female.
PwC annual visit to Immanuel
On Friday 19 June, 30 PwC employees visited school for their annual away day to sample life in the day of a teacher away from their usual corporate world. Year 8 students participated in a series of activities run by PwC staff designed to challenge their physical and mental ability including Dragons’ Den style business pitching, football/netball tournaments, creative workshops and much more… The day culminated in an awards ceremony run by PwC which awarded prizes and medals to our best performing students on the day. Our Post 16 students also benefited from PwC’s expertise when they were treated to specialist CV and Personal Statement workshops.
Immanuel College votes for our Yorkshire Great!
As votes were cast in the General Election on May 7th, our students were learning about democracy by voting for who they thought was the greatest man or woman ever to hail from Yorkshire.
Students were encouraged to conduct their own research on the candidates, enabling them to make both educated and informed decisions before arriving at the school’s polling station. A total of 1239 votes were cast throughout the day with the event proving a huge success.
The winner, with a majority of 25 was Ben Parkinson, Britain’s most badly injured surviving soldier.
