About Emmanuel College

School type
Independent school, ages 11 to 18
School size
1495 pupils enrolled
Age range
11 to 18

At Emmanuel College we have a reputation for academic excellence, yet we place a far higher premium upon character development.

The results our students achieve place Emmanuel firmly amongst a small handful of the best comprehensive schools in the nation, yet our student intake is carefully tailored to be representative of inner city Gateshead and Newcastle (two-thirds of our students come from “disadvantaged and highly disadvantaged” areas, and the average IQ is 100 with as many low-attaining as high-attaining students).

Our staff are dedicated professionals, yet most would describe what they do in terms of vocation rather than career.

We have a distinctive Christian ethos, yet we apply no faith test on intake. Parents choose Emmanuel for its orderly, calm, safe environment and emphasis upon respect for authority.

If you have a passion to make a difference in the lives of the young people of Gateshead and Newcastle, and demand the best from yourself as well as others, we would like to hear from you.
