We are very sad to announce the death of our Deputy Headteacher Sophie Gillies. Sophie was a member of staff for over ten years. She was an inspirational teacher, leader, colleague and friend who had students and staff at Immanuel College at the heart of her work. Everyone who knew her was influenced by her positive attitude, high expectations and sense of humour. She is much missed. Her funeral will be on Monday 30th January at St Nicholas Church in West Tanfield. The school will be represented but there will also be an opportunity to celebrate her life at an event in school in a few weeks time.
May God in his infinite love and mercy bring the living and departed in the Lord Jesus, to a joyful resurrection and the fulfilment of his eternal kingdom. Amen
