Emmanuel Christian School (ECS) is an independent co-educational Christian school, providing an education rooted in the Christian faith for children between the ages of three and eleven.
To be a Christian school for Oxford promoting life and learning to the full.
Tucked away in Littlemore, in a beautiful Victorian schoolhouse, founded by John Henry Newman in 1838, Emmanuel Christian School (ECS) is a small, nondenominational Christian school for children aged 3 to 11. It was established in 1988, when a group of parents felt the need for a Christian approach to education. They noted that over the years schools increasingly reflected the humanistic, secular and materialistic outlook prevalent in society. The founding families of ECS wanted to put God, and a Biblical view of the world back into the heart of their children’s education. Our philosophy remains that children be prepared to engage fully and productively in society, bringing to bear an ability to think critically for themselves, as well as a willingness to serve God and society. Here at ECS your child will receive a truly balanced education, which nurtures the development of their unique, God-given abilities to the full, academically, physically, socially and spiritually. Your child will find encouragement and affirmation of their progress and achievements as well as educational excellence in a Christian environment. Pupils’ powers of reasoning, their reflective and critical thinking, imagination and creativity, feeling and communication are nurtured and developed. The curriculum is based on the Christian way of life while simultaneously fulfilling many of the demands of the National Curriculum and the need for approval by Ofsted, while going beyond these. We are proud to provide your child with a safe, non-discriminating environment where pupils and staff treat each other with respect, consideration, acceptance and love.
