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.
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.
Wear Claret & Amber day – 30th anniversary of the Bradford City Fire
On Wednesday May 6th, students and staff wore claret and amber to raise £547.05 for the burns unit at the University of Bradford.
Students swapped their school polo shirts for a City shirt, or wore scarves, hats and badges.
The 30th anniversary of the disaster is particularly poignant to our very own Jane Gray. Her dad, Jack Ludlam, died in the fire. She said: “The events of that day are still clearly etched in my memory and while I am much more able to cope with those memories, I still prefer to keep them private.
