Here at Emanuel we welcome applications from young people who want to work hard, throw themselves into the opportunities of school life and become responsible members of their communities.
A typical Emanuel pupil is bright and hardworking, but more importantly kind and thoughtful, contributing positively to the school. Our admissions process is designed to help us assess if each candidate will flourish both academically and holistically in the school. It is important to us that the pupils we offer places to will make the most of their time here, and gain most from the educational experience. While we value academic ability, we are also interested in pupils who display talent in other areas.
We want to address social injustice in all aspects of our school, including the admissions process. It is our hope that no prospective pupil is discouraged from making an application to our school. You may be interested in reading the headmaster’s response to the death of George Floyd.

We are pleased to confirm the process for admissions in September 2021. 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. Please note that registration for 2021 entry is now closed.
