The Emanuel School is an independent, co-educational, Jewish day school, located on a heritage-listed campus in Randwick, an eastern suburb of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The school was founded in 1983 at Woollahra.

The Emanuel School currently caters for approximately 700 students from Kindergarten to Year 12. The Principal is ex-Cranbrook School headmaster Dr Bruce Carter.

The school is affiliated with the Jewish Communal Appeal,cite web |url= http://www.jca.org.au/constituents_list.cfm|title= Jewish Day Schools|accessdate=2007-12-02 |work=Constituents|publisher=Jewish Communal Appeal] the Junior School Heads Association of Australia (JSHAA),cite web |url=http://www.jshaa.asn.au/nsw/directory/index.asp |title=JSHAA New South Wales Directory of Members |accessdate=2007-12-02 |year =2007 |work=New South Wales Branch|publisher=Junior School Heads' Association of Australia] and the Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia (AHISA).cite web |url=http://www.ahisa.com.au/Display.aspx?tabid=2230 |title=AHISA Schools|accessdate=2007-12-02 |year =2007 |month =April |work=New South Wales|publisher=Association of Heads of Independent Schools of Australia]


In 1982, under the leadership of Rabbi Brian Fox and with the support of many other committed members of Temple Emanuel Woollahra (now know as Emanuel Synagogue) and the wider Jewish community of Sydney, the idea of Emanuel School was born. On 2 February 1983 the first 53 students from Kindergarten to Year 6 were enrolled in rooms at Temple Emanuel. Later in 1983, Years 3 to 7 moved to an unused school in Watsons Bay, in the grounds of Our Lady of the Sea.

In 1984, with significant financial assistance and personal support from Mr Aron Kleinlehrer, together with communal generosity, Emanuel School purchased their present site in Randwick. The School opened its doors in 1985 with 230 students from Years K-8. The Right Honourable R. J. Hawke M.P officially opened the school in 1986.

In 2001 the Emanuel School Board took on a new management plan, which included the appointment of a new school Principal – Dr Bruce Carter AM [http://www.itsanhonour.gov.au/honours/honour_roll/search.cfm?aus_award_id=1040470&search_type=simple&showInd=true It's an honour entry - Bruce Northleigh CARTER, Member of the Order of Australia - 10 June 2002] . "For service to education as a principal, administrator and educator, particularly through Cranbrook School and professional educational bodies and forums."]

In 2005, under the auspices of the NSW Jewish Communal Appeal, the Emanuel School ran a successful Capital Appeal which primarily aids in debt reduction and some property development.cite web|url = http://www.emanuelschool.nsw.edu.au/downloads/Dr_Cohen.pdf|title = The Emanuel School - A Brief Introduction to Its Foundation|accessdate = 2007-12-02|last = Cohen|first = David|format = PDF|work = Downloads|publisher = The Emanuel School]

Facilities and curriculum

The School has a compulsory Instrumental Programme for students from Year 3 to 8. This ensures that music is one of Emanuel’s focal points. Sport is another focal point of Emanuel's students.

The Emanuel School Learning Centre has specialised educators who support classroom learning across the entire school. Experienced and specially trained practitioners lead the Gifted and Talented Programme and Opportunity Classes. Students benefit from the Laptop Programme which requires laptops for all primary Opportunity Classes and all High School students.

The Kornmehl Centre Emanuel Pre-school is situated on the same campus as the K-12 school and caters for 60 children from 3 to 5 years of age.
