“Sixth form leadership is having a positive impact. Leaders are monitoring the quality of teaching and making sure that learners are moving appropriately to the next stage in their education, employment or training”
Ofsted, March 2016
At The Nottingham Emmanuel School our strong sense of community and high level of aspiration allow all students who study here to achieve their full potential. Smaller classroom sizes and a commitment to the very best pastoral care enable students to excel in their academic studies and to grow in their character and personal development.
We are tremendously proud of our continued academic success and each year the number of students achieving the ultimate A* grade continues to rise. Consequently, a significant number of our students have secured places at the most ambitious national and international university destinations; from Cambridge in the UK to Rhodes College, an Ivy League university in the USA.
To complement their academic commitments, our Sixth Form students take part in a wide range of enrichment programmes which include the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, EPQ, volunteering as mentors, Sixth Form football and netball teams, student cooking, debating society, Christian Union, Young Leaders project, volunteering to serve on international projects in Ghana and undertaking career experiences with leading businesses. In addition to this, Sixth Form students at The Nottingham Emmanuel School are encouraged to take a position of responsibility in the wider school community, whether through working with the chaplaincy team or by becoming prefects or being elected to serve as Head Boy or Head Girl.
Alongside our academic and enrichment programme, we offer extensive careers guidance and support whether applying to university, for an apprenticeship, or for employment. Each student is provided with personalised opportunities and advice to ensure that they obtain the best academic portfolio and the necessary transferable skills in order for them to pursue successful careers beyond their A level studies.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Sixth Form as you embark upon this exciting next step in your educational journey.
