Our Leadership

Cognita Leadership

Headquartered in the UK, Cognita has a regional structure to support our diverse and growing family of schools around the world. Between them, our schools deliver a wide range of internationally renowned curricula, including the International Baccalaureate as well as the national curricula of Australia, Brazil, Chile, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, the UK, USA and Vietnam.

To manage this diversity, we have Chief Executives in each region who, supported by their respective teams of professional experts, provide leadership and accountability for outcomes in their schools. Included in this structure is an education leader for each region.
