This is a great time to join a science department that teaches science from 4 to 18 and combines discrete science lessons with enrichment and project work. Whether your interest is teaching A level chemistry, inspiring pupils in our new middle 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 a strong GCSE teacher, comfortable across all three science.
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 scientific enquiry.
School 21 is a very special and different kind of place to work. We empower staff to find their voice and their creativity. We offer collaboration and learning across ages and subjects as well as a tailored programme of professional development which results in extraordinary outcomes for the students. We offer multiple routes of progression through subjects and pedagogies. We believe strongly in developing the full potential of all staff.
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 https://www.edutopia.org/school/school-21.
