Immanuel offers a broad and flexible curriculum which promotes the intellectual, creative, physical and personal achievement of all pupils.
In October 2013, ISI reported that ‘the excellent curriculum makes a significant contribution to the pupils’ success’ and the continual process of review ensures that the highest standards are maintained. At Key Stage 3, students are placed in ability sets in English, Maths, Science, Modern Languages and Jewish Studies allowing them to learn at the level appropriate for their ability.
At Key Stage 4, subjects range from the core elements of English, Maths, Science and Jewish Studies to more varied options such as Photography, Electronics and Media Studies and students are given every opportunity to study their preferred choices at both GCSE and A Level.
Students are taught to think for themselves and work independently and a variety of teaching and learning styles are utilised to promote academic excellence combined with high levels of Jewish learning; the needs of all students are accommodated, regardless of their ages and abilities.
Learning within the classroom is carefully combined with the school’s extra-curricular programme and there is an extensive range of educational trips and activities including annual visits to Amsterdam in Year 7, Paris in Year 8 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.
