Admission to the Senior School of Immanuel College is by competitive examination. All senior-school candidates sit entrance examinations in English and Mathematics; scholarship candidates have the option of sitting a Jewish Studies examination of an hour's duration. All senior-school candidates are subsequently called for interview. The school offers academic scholarships and exhibitions in music and art. Admission into the Preparatory School is on the basis of an informal assessment consisting of a play session and a focus activity.Details of the application procedure for both the senior and preparatory schools, application forms for download, and details of the 10 Immanuel Jakobovits Scholarships (worth up to 100% of school fees) available for Year 7 entry annually, are available from the school website or by contacting the Admissions Department (details below).
Students are not only equipped to achieve excellent A Level results (and, in turn, obtain sought-after places at the UK's leading universities) but are also encouraged to think independently and to develop their own responses to the material that they study.
The ambitious and vibrant culture of the Sixth Form provides a stimulating environment in which students can take intellectual risks, challenge the premises of conventional thought, exchange ideas, and probe beyond the confines of examination syllabuses. Sixth-form students thus grow intellectually in a way that enables them to excel in their A Level studies, preparing them for study at undergraduate level, and equipping them to respond to the challenges of their future careers.
External applications for Immanuel College Sixth Form for the coming academic year may be submitted at any time during the preceding academic year. However, early applications are strongly encouraged, as it increases the likelihood of applicants being offered their first choice of A Level subjects. Further details of how to apply for admission into the Sixth Form are available on the school website.
