Emmaus School is so much more than just a school, though our son has made excellent progress. There is a real sense of happiness and friendliness displayed both between the children, but also between the parents and staff. I don’t need to worry about my child being unhappy, lonely or bullied at school. I know the children care for each other and the staff care for the pupils. And I mean genuinely care, not because of ‘a policy’, but because that’s how they live out their values and faith. Because the school is relatively small, you can get to know other people and staff are always happy to talk or listen. Parents are involved and welcomed and the whole school has a caring family atmosphere. I just wish I had enjoyed the privilege of growing up in a school such as this. I am so happy I am able to send my child here. You never forget your school days and I know my son’s memories of this time will be very happy ones.
My daughter was very unhappy at her previous school, I decided to move her to Emmaus in June she settled in very quickly, everybody at the school making her feel very welcome.
She returned to school in September and is thoroughly enjoying her school days. She comes out of school telling me about all the things she is learning, and how she doesn't worry about losing her "best friend" as "everybody is friends".
As a parent I am so pleased with the decision I made and only wish I had moved her to Emmaus 3 years ago.
After coming to Emmaus in 2009 with my three children, we have experienced the Lord
first hand. I was baptized in July 2012 and my husband and 2 boys were saved too and baptized in the November.
God has worked in our family from the moment we stepped over the threshold. We are thankful daily to God for bringing us here. Our work has only just begun. Our family is now a part of every day in school. They are filled with God's presence and we are enriched as a family as a direct result of the amazing work that goes on here.
This is testimony of how a whole family has been saved by our Lord Jesus Christ through Emmaus school.
"Emmaus School – wow!! We are 'newbies' to the school but it has honestly felt more
like being welcomed home into an extended family than joining a new school. The children are both loving it and are becoming more inquisitive and independent in their learning style, both in school
subjects and 'projects' they have initiated at home.
It is wonderful to see the Christian ethos of the school being lived out by the teachers every day and at every level. What an example to the students (and parents alike) to see such perseverance (often in the face of adversity), patience, love, acceptance, valuing each child's individuality and gifts and commitment to relationships from the staff. For those parents who like to be more involved there are masses of opportunities to make a very real contribution. The safety, acceptance and love shown at Emmaus allows children to flourish in their own way at their own pace both academically and spiritually. To the staff: Thank you to you all – you're doing an amazing job. To any parents: Get yourselves over to visit – once you've seen it first-hand you will want to be part of it I'm sure. "
