Immanuel College is a mixed Church of England secondary school and sixth form located in the City of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. It was officially opened in October 2001.

History[edit]

The school began when construction began in 2000 and was finally opened in 2001 by the Bishop of Bradford, David Smith. The school now has modern facilities such as modern computer suites in most departments, dining facilities and a large sports hall.

Previously a voluntary aided school administered by Bradford City Council, in February 2016 Immanuel College was converted to academy status. However the school continues to be under the guidance of the Diocese of Leeds, and coordinates with Bradford City Council for admissions.

Charity work[edit]

The school has also participated in a trip to Gambia in 2006, where over 20 students along with teachers helped to build a new library in a remote village. The school raised over £2,000 to build the library which they then continued to paint and supply books for. The school returned the next year and helped paint the classrooms of the school and gave supplies for its completion once they left. The school also often has non uniform days where students pay £1 to wear their own clothes. In the more recent years, sixth form students have also had "fancy dress days" to raise money for charity.
