School 21 is a pioneering 4 to 18 school in Stratford, East London, for children from all backgrounds, focused on teaching 21st-century skills to prepare their students for today's world. They believe that to prepare young people to succeed in school, work and life - education needs to be done differently.
School 21 aims to rebalance head (academic success), heart (character and well-being) and hand (generating ideas, problem solving, making a difference). They have developed a series of pedagogies and approaches that give students the chance to find their voice, develop deep knowledge and understanding, and create beautiful work that has real value beyond the classroom. They achieve this through interweaving three pedagogies into their curriculum: wellbeing, oracy, and project-based learning.
