Students entering Emanuel at 16+ join the sixth form – the final two years of a young person’s compulsory education in the UK. We aim to welcome approximately 30 bright and ambitious young people into our sixth form from other schools each year.
We are looking for students who show a genuine engagement with their learning and who will enjoy the high level of support we give students when applying to universities in the UK and abroad, as well as art schools, drama schools and music conservatoires.
From 2020 we will be offering Battersea Rise Trust Awards to particularly outstanding applicants at 16+. These are awards of a free place at Emanuel School for bright young people in need of financial support and represent part of our wider social mobility commitment in south west London.

There is no cap on registrations. The registration process opens from two years before the time of entry through to the October before the year of entry, irrespective of the number of registrations. We therefore encourage prospective parents and students to take their time to decide if they would like to make an application and have the opportunity to visit the school before registering.
Registration for September 2021 is now closed. We cannot accept late registrations and cannot consider any late requests.
Registration for September 2022 will open in April 2021 and remain open until mid-October 2021 (exact dates TBC) there will be no limitation on the numbers of registrations accepted and therefore no rush to register immediately when registration opens.
Please note registrations cannot be transferred to different entry points.
In some circumstances, usually when household income is below £26,000, it is possible to waive the registration fee. Please get in touch with the admissions office if this applies to you before filling in the registration form- once paid we cannot refund.
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:
