It’s been a really hard time for many of our 70 year old-plus Old Emanuels this year. Many have had to shield and invariably haven’t been able to socialise with family, friends and neighbours.

We are sending handwritten and, in many cases, beautifully illustrated cards to each of them with the hope that they will provide a little Christmas cheer. Pupils from Year 6 through to the Sixth Form have shared Emanuel updates and their personal experiences at school in their carefully crafted messages. We were delighted to see the thoughtful and uplifting messages pupils have written and we know it will be very special to our OEs to receive a card from a current pupil.
