Year 9 is the first year of the Middle School. We have a small number of places available at this entry point; the exact number varies every year (usually around 6-8).
Registration for September 2021 is now closed. We cannot accept late registrations and cannot consider any late requests.
We are aware that uncertainty about how the admissions process will be affected by the Covid-19 restrictions will be adding to the anxiety of pupils and parents this term.
Our aim is to make the process as fair, safe and welcoming as possible for all families. Although we want to offer a clear plan for the entrance process this year, we are aware that disruption to these plans could occur at any point and we will have to be as nimble as possible in such circumstances.
Our plan and intention is to run the 2021 entry process as follows:
Important update regarding the 13+ entry point
After much careful consideration we have made the decision to close the 13+ (Year 9) entry to Emanuel School. There will not be a 13+ entry process for September 2022 (and beyond) and it will not be possible to formally register for this entry point.
We have made this decision due to the increasingly low availability of places at this entry point which means we are unfortunately having to turn down excellent candidates.
We will continue to operate an occasional vacancy list and will admit pupils into Year 9, if there are places available, subject to assessment and interview.
Parents who are interested in pursuing this route for their children should contact Mrs Vartouhi Jones (Admissions Department Vartouhi.Jones@emanuel.org.uk). We will make note of all interest and contact families as appropriate.
