At Immanuel we believe that we are
‘All God’s Children’
At our last Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools (SIAS) our distinctiveness and effectiveness as a Church of England School was judged to be ‘good with outstanding features’
The school through its distinctive Christian character is ‘outstanding’ at meeting the needs of all learners.
The impact of Collective Worship on the school community is ‘outstanding’
The report also states that, ‘The Church of England can be justly proud of Immanuel College as it is now performing well in the service of the education of over 1000 young people …of over 1000 young people …’
‘God with us’
We believe that God is with us here at Immanuel
Being a Voluntary Aided Church of England School, we do take seriously the legal requirements to have a daily act of Collective Worship. Collective Worship does not presume that any student has a Christian faith or even any faith at all. Instead, it allows students to be reflective in their own way using a broadly Christian act of worship. This is done in different ways, partly through Year Assemblies, but also through classroom based activities at the beginning of the day.
Being a Church School also means we have a Chaplaincy as an integral part of the College. This Chaplaincy presently consists of two chaplains plus local volunteers. The Chaplaincy helps with student support and running lunchtime clubs. The Chaplains are always available for all members of the College Community – whether students, staff or parents/family. It is also in partnership with the RE department.
