Founding and aims[edit]

Caldecote Towers, Immanuel College

Immanuel College (formally named The Charles Kalms – Henry Ronson Immanuel College) was founded by Lord Jakobovits in 1990. His vision was of an educational establishment that would affirm Orthodox Jewish values and provide secular education. The college aims to create in pupils "an integrated personality whose Jewish identity is knowledgeable, secure and proud, as a spur to achievement and responsibility, and as a challenge to exemplary citizenship in a pluralist society".[2]

A report by The Sutton Trust placed Immanuel College in the top 2% of schools nationally in terms of its students' success in gaining admission to the 13 most competitive research universities.[3]

Grounds and facilities[edit]

The school offers public examinations in Years 10 and 11 (GCSE and the International GCSE) and in the Sixth Form (AS and A Level and International A levels).[citation needed]
