Education at Immanuel College Preparatory School extends beyond the school day and beyond the school grounds.
Drawing together all the elements of our school, our co-curricular activities are woven into the fabric of our school. Whilst they are not compulsory, they are highly recommended for the social and educational value that they add.
Children in Year 1 and above can attend a variety of clubs which are on offer every week from Monday to Thursday, either before school, at lunch time or after school. These range from puzzle club to drama, gardening to art, trampolining to films. There are music and drama opportunities on an individual basis, with children taking and gaining LAMDA and Singing awards as well as working through the grade exams for Piano and these children have the opportunity to participate in our Performing Arts Festival, which takes place to coincide with National Sing- Up Day. We have a whole school show twice a year, staged in two parts so that we can accommodate as large an audience as possible in our Theatre. In addition, each year there are a variety of class presentations performed both to the school community and externally to our parents and other guests.
The Prep School Choir is developing a great reputation; they have performed alongside the Senior School Choir at school events including Gala Dinners, and with the Shabbaton Choir at a variety of charitable events.
Team Sports have increased in importance within our provision - we host and participate in Macabbi Netball and Football competitions and enjoy fixtures with several local schools.
Chess is a popular club, allowing children to use their logical minds to try to outwit each other. We have hosted the Macabbi Chess Tournament and our pupils participate in the UK Chess Challenge. Quiz Club is also on offer, giving the children the opportunity to extend their general knowledge and learn with pupils across year groups.
Our Purim Talent Show is one of the many highlight of the children’s year as are the House Activity days, in which activities are enjoyed in houses rather than classes, with older and younger children learning and working together.
The Independent Schools Inspectorate found co-curricular life at Immanuel College to be "excellent".
