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’.
Immanuel College is proud to have been involved in an award ceremony hosted by the Bradford Telegraph & Argus last night. We were nominated for three awards, shortlisted in each of those categories and came away with two of the prizes. It was a really lovely evening, which we were honoured to be a part of and we are immensely proud of our school and its success.
Details of the evening and prize winners can be found on the T&A website:

Hats off to Louise Cowman
Year 10 student Louise Cowman started her GCSE Textiles in September. Louise has been working on the first unit of work which is based on Couture Hats with ‘Bugs’ for the main theme. Louise wanted to focus on something different; instead of using standard fabric for the structure of the hat she wanted to use something a little more extraordinary, and devised a shape based on the curl of a caterpillar and women’s 1930’s hair styles. Since making the final hat, she has been focusing on ways of using mixed media – Video, photography and audio to push the boundaries/develop even further the hat. She is now working on getting the hat onto high end fashion catwalks!
