Empowering every young person to change the world

School 21 is a pioneering 4 to 18 school in Stratford, East London, for children from all backgrounds.

As part of the Big Education Trust, School 21 operates with the conviction that schools need to ensure a focus on Head (academic success), Heart (character and well-being) and Hand (generating ideas, problem solving, making a difference).

Mr Moray Dickson, Headteacher of School 21, is committed to empowering young people to take on the world, and to the development of innovative practices to change the shape of education in the UK.

School 21 has 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.
