Immanuel College

General Curriculum Highlights

Immanuel offers a broad and flexible curriculum which promotes the intellectual, creative, physical and personal achievement of all pupils.

At Immanuel College we are committed to providing a broad based and liberal education that is aligned with fundamental British values for all pupils who attend the College. We acknowledge that it is our role to shape and deepen the learning for every member of our community. We develop a positive atmosphere in which pupils feel safe and feel they belong, in which they enjoy learning, and know that they will succeed as the challenge has been set at the right level. All teaching is structured to maximise learning opportunities based on an understanding of pupils’ need, subject knowledge and the use of excellent resources. However, students are taught to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning.

At Key Stage 3, every pupil experiences a broad curriculum including: English, Science, Mathematics, Jewish Studies, Modern Hebrew, PE, Art, Computing, Drama, French, Spanish, Geography, History, Music, Photography. Where appropriate pupils are set to allow them to learn at an appropriate level.

At Key Stage 4, every pupil takes an I/GCSE programme that includes English Literature, English Language, Mathematics, Religious Studies, Combined Science or Triple aware Science and then three additional options.

At A Level, our policy is for students to choose three subjects for study and to take their examinations at the end of their Year 13. In addition, Year 12 students are strongly encouraged to undertake an independent research project of their own, in a subject of their choice, leading to the Edexcel Extended Project Qualification. As an alternative, gifted Mathematicians who wish to pursue Further Mathematics A Level may opt for this as an extension of their studies. Jewish Studies lessons are an integral part of the Sixth Form at Immanuel College and more details can be found in the dedicated Sixth Form area.

Learning within the classroom is carefully combined with the school’s co-curricular programme. There is an extensive range of educational trips and activities including annual visits to Amsterdam in Year 7 and Israel in Year 9. In addition, Sixth Form students are given the opportunity to visit sites of Jewish and historical significance in Poland.

Further details of each individual subject can be found from the list of departments.
