School 21, a 4 to 18 school with a growing reputation for innovation and impact, is an exciting place in which to grow and develop your teaching craft.   
We are looking for an excellent psychology teacher who is passionate about their subject, who is keen to develop their practice in a dynamic and innovative teaching environment. School 21 is an all-through school and your role will have a particular emphasis on the teaching of psychology within our sixth form, Six 21. Ideally, you will be an experienced A-level psychology teacher and it is essential that you have a passion for developing the best pedagogy for that age range.  The ability to teach a second subject is an advantage. 
We believe the teaching of psychology should make regular and sustained connections to the real world, with students learning about how to make hypotheses, design experiments and collect and analyse data. Psychology is a very popular subject within the sixth form, so we are looking for a confident teacher who can contribute to a distinctive and bold vision within the department going forward. 
School 21 is a very special and different kind of place to work in.  All of us are striving to become pioneers (rethinking key aspects of education practice), multipliers (growing others and building teams), craftspeople (who think deeply about their practice) and people with integrity and humanity (driven by a strong sense of values and purpose).  This is what we are looking for in new members of staff.   We empower staff to find their voice and their creativity.   We offer collaboration and learning across ages and subjects.  We believe strongly in developing the full potential of all staff.

For more information please see the candidate information pack,  or e-mail Anne Shaker, HR Manager,  at

Early application is encouraged as we are hoping to interview and appoint as soon as possible.  School 21 reserves the right to close applications early and make an appointment at any stage.
