This is a great time to join a science department that teaches science from 4 to 18 and combines discrete science lessons with rich inter-disciplinary projects. Whether your interest is teaching A level chemistry, inspiring pupils in our new middle school school or developing deep thinking in our secondary school, School 21 is a place where there is a rich and exciting mix of ideas about the best pedagogies and curriculum. Ideally, you will be an experienced A-level chemistry teacher and it is essential that you have a passion for developing the best pedagogy for that age range.
Science comes alive at School 21 as students grapple with the big ideas that underpin the world around us. Teachers plan challenging and exciting projects, develop thinking skills to a high level and foster collaborations with other subjects across the curriculum. Recent science projects have included STEM projects and a genetics and drama project: is it ever right to play God?, a physics and art project with students designing and making mini-golf courses using mechanisms and electronic components, and an immersive Jack the Ripper tour featuring Virtual Reality film and live demonstrations of Victorian criminology techniques.
Within the sixth form, we will seek to pair students with experts and experienced professionals in various scientific fields to undertake research, on-site projects, or work placements. Our aim here will be to stretch our students beyond the A-level course and to give them opportunities to experience science at the cutting edge of discovery. You will work alongside the other science teachers in an inspirational department to develop the curriculum and schemes of work. You will analyse student data to identify underachievement and develop intervention strategies to ensure all students make outstanding progress.
At School 21 we believe that the purpose of education is to develop the whole child: head (academics), heart (character and well-being) and hand (generating ideas, problem solving, creating extraordinary authentic outcomes). School 21 has established a strong track record - an outstanding ofsted, excellent GCSE results and a growing reputation, for example being the first and only international case study chosen by US educators, Edutopia
