The Nottingham Emmanuel School opened in 2002 and moved to our current building in late 2008. The £25 million site is located near the banks of the River Trent in West Bridgford. The school is a diverse community, serving families and students from every academic, social, faith and ethnic background.
At The Nottingham Emmanuel School, we strive for excellence in all elements of school life. We are entirely focused on delivering the highest standards of teaching and also 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 the next step in their lives.
We believe that education is a vehicle to transform lives and provide each child the opportunity to not only learn and grow, but also to develop aspiration and character. The Nottingham Emmanuel School has developed an inclusive and supportive environment where students and staff feel secure and valued. Within the school we continue to develop the ‘whole child’, ensuring that students achieve academic greatness alongside becoming resilient, hardworking and community-focused individuals, who are prepared to go the extra mile to serve and support others. Our Christian service to the local community and our students is motivated by the desire to remove any barriers that are preventing students achieving or reducing aspiration.
What sets The Nottingham Emmanuel School apart is its determination to set the highest academic standards alongside strong, inclusive Christian values and ethos. We know that every member of the school community is not a finished product; we all can learn and grow from one another. At Nottingham Emmanuel School our school moto is ‘Together to learn, to grow, to serve’. We want to ensure that our students not only achieve great examination results, but also become great citizens who want to serve their local community. Emmanuel has been praised nationally for its outstanding work as an effective, inclusive Church school. The name of the school ‘Emmanuel’ means ‘God is with us’ a theme which permeates throughout the values of the school.
I have been in post as Principal of Nottingham Emmanuel School since January 2021. Having lived in Nottingham City all of my life, growing up in council estates in a single parent Christian family; I feel that I have been called to serve the Nottingham Emmanuel School community. As the first member of my family to attend university, I also want to ensure that all students are made aware of all the different life pathways and opportunities available to them. I am delighted to lead a school which exemplifies such high standards and high ideals, and I look forward to welcoming you here.
