At The Nottingham Emmanuel School, our students and staff value the rich diversity of our school community, including our diversity of faiths. We give opportunities for students to learn about God, to ask questions about faith and spirituality as well as encouraging them to take their own journey of discovery to explore what they do or don’t believe.
We have explored what it means for every member of our school community to live out our Christian mission and values. Click on the different roles below to learn a little more:
We also believe in putting our faith into action through our House system, with strong Christian role models who show us how to give hope and dignity to others through practical work in our communities. The four Houses at Emmanuel have been carefully and thoughtfully named after Christian personalities who embody the four school values of Wisdom, Hope, Community and Dignity.
