Admissions Criteria

The Nottingham Emmanuel School stands as a beacon school regionally and nationally for distinctively Christian secondary education, providing the very best academic opportunities through excellent teaching and learning, working together to provide purposeful and holistic development of every student.

Our catchment area is within a 10 mile radius of St Mary’s Church, High Pavement, Nottingham, meaning our student population travels from areas across the city and county. We have an inclusive admissions policy, welcoming differing proportions of families with a Christian faith, a world faith and with no faith to apply for a place.

We look forward to welcoming you to join a different kind of learning journey – one which combines the very best in academic aspiration with the very best in character and faith development. Families are advised that children are expected to participate in twice weekly Acts of Worship and to receive a full Religious Education.

Determined Admission Arrangements 2021-22

Please note the school has different admission numbers for other year groups which have been determined by the operational capacity of the Academy. This operational capacity is decided after taking into account the following:

  • Class sizes, especially in option groups which are full and adding additional students would prejudice the provision of education for existing students.
  • Adding additional students would require additional teaching hours which would mean recruiting new teachers, which has not been financially planned for in the current curriculum.

Year 7 – 180
Year 8- 180
Year 9 – 180
Year 10 – 175
Year 11 – 175
