Thrive in a rapidly evolving world

At Cognita, we know every student is unique.

We nurture their distinct personalities and strengths. We support them academically, socially, and emotionally, wherever they are in the world, wherever they’re starting from.

And each and every one of our schools is unique too.

We protect what’s special about them, while offering them rich knowledge, opportunities, and best practices. And they get to be part of something bigger. We open their classrooms to the collective wisdom of over 100 schools in 16 countries, ensuring every child gets an education that’s, quite literally, world class.

It’s an individual approach that empowers every school, teacher and student to focus on what they do best. And thrive.

Launched in 2004, Cognita is an extraordinary
community of diverse yet connected schools,
spanning sixteen different countries.

We genuinely believe that a holistic education is about connecting the cognitive, social and emotional. This results in students that succeed academically but with more. The ‘more’ is the way they are prepared to take their place in the world. A world that is complex, fast paced and exciting. Our students use their education to make a positive difference to themselves and others. They have a sense that anything is possible.''

Our Cognita Strengths

Academic excellence

The only thing that never changes in a Cognita school is quality. We invest in our schools and teachers to keep everyone growing. Our students are equipped with a strong academic foundation. And a holistic education that prepares them for whatever lies ahead.

Great teachers

We understand the value of great teachers. Our teachers are excellent and we want to help them grow even further. We offer global career opportunities and leadership development programmes to keep our teachers shining. Because education and progression should never stand still and learning is lifelong.

Shared knowledge

We’re a global staffroom of over 18,000 colleagues. That’s a lot of expertise. When a new school joins us, we open the door to all that knowledge and effective practices. So that schools will keep their individuality, but gain all the support of our worldwide community.

School Finder

We have over 100 schools across 16 countries, teaching 12 different curricula.
