Principal's Welcome


At The Nottingham Emmanuel School, we strive for excellence. We are entirely focused on delivering the highest standards of teaching and insist on the highest standards of conduct amongst our students. As a result, we can be confident of the very best outcomes for our students: excellent examination results which enable them to take their next step in life.

We also believe, along with increasing numbers of parents, that education today is something more than academic success alone. Just as important as children’s vital academic development is the development of values and character, on which so much in life really depends. Many parents are looking for a school which develops values of service, compassion, humanity, community, thankfulness, courage, hope and forgiveness. They want their children to grow up to be open-minded, outward-looking and generous spirited – ready to make a difference to the world around them. They want their children to develop in a truly rounded way: academically, physically, socially, culturally, and crucially, morally and spiritually.

What sets The Nottingham Emmanuel School apart is its determination to achieve both: to set the highest academic standards alongside strong, inclusive Christian values and ethos. I am delighted to lead a school which exemplifies such high standards and high ideals, and I look forward to welcoming you here.
