All past pupils and teachers of Emanuel automatically become Old Emanuels (OEs). We aim to keep OEs in touch with each other and the school through events and reunions as well as through regular OE communications.

These include our twice-termly e-newsletter, annual magazine The Rose and Portcullis and our OE Facebook and Twitter pages. OEs also support Emanuel by providing careers assistance, giving talks and supporting fundraising initiatives for the Battersea Rise Trust.

Privacy Notice for Alumni and Friends


Due to the generous support of OEs and their families, our archive has grown into a fully functioning small museum.

A large percentage of our documents are now available to browse online, including The Portcullis magazine and many other useful documents including prize lists and drama cast lists.

We are always looking for ways to develop our collection, so if you have a fascinating item at home please do get in touch. If you have photographs you would like returned we are happy to scan them and add them to our digital archive and return the originals to you.

If you lend or give us any photos, wherever possible, please date and annotate them. In the long term, it makes the photo much more useful and will allow us to cross-reference it by name in our database.

We are particularly looking for anything from the 1970s and 1980s, sports photographs, private collections, drama, music and societies programmes/photographs, newspaper clippings and personal memoirs.

To access the digital archives, please get in touch with myself or the development office for the password.

Many thanks for your support.
