Emmanuel School strives for excellence in Christian education and is open to all those parents or carers share our mission and values and will support the school in its practices. The School is a central part of EMCF, however we gladly accept children from families within other churches and faith backgrounds (including no faith at all) and from all spheres of society. 

We accept children from across the city of Derby and beyond, where it is feasible for the child to travel to school, and for the family to play its full part in school life. 

Places will be offered to children in the following order of priority:

  • Children of members of EMCF.
  • Siblings of non-EMCF families already in school.
  • Children from other churches.
  • Children from non-church homes.

Applications for entry should be completed on our application form (either downloadable or from the school) and addressed to the Head Teacher.

Applications for September entry should be submitted by the end of February of that year. Any applications submitted after that date will automatically go on a waiting list, and offers will be made in the event of vacancies occurring unexpectedly after that meeting. Applications for entry at other times will be considered if vacancies exist.

Please contact the school for a printed prospectus and application form - or down load via the links in the right pane.
