If we want children leaving school with a toolkit of knowledge, ideas, attributes and skills to succeed in the 21st century, then we will need to teach in different ways. That will require a new kind of teacher – a 21st century teacher. At School 21 we have recruited the finest teachers who believe in this kind of teaching, who want to teach “the whole child”.
These teachers are coaches and mentors, project designers and subject specialists, teachers of English Language and well-being. They are collaborators and forward planners. They have a spirit of enquiry about them. Above all else they are constantly learning – reading widely, observing others, finding new ways of unlocking the potential of every child.
