Cognita Be Well

Our Be Well Manifesto

A Cognita education is based upon delivering academic excellence, character development and a global perspective to our students. We believe wellbeing is integral to these three elements.

As a global schools family, we have a responsibility to empower our students to understand and better maintain wellbeing. We do this by:

  • providing a supportive culture, ethos and environment
  • supporting young people to develop the key character traits of metacognition, resilience and agency
  • building a partnership with parents and the wider community

As part of our Global Be Well Day 2019, we worked with some of the world’s leading experts on wellbeing, including sleep scientist Dr Matthew Walker from the University of California at Berkeley (below and right).

Global Be Well Day

On Friday 27th September 2019, our global schools family celebrated our first-ever Global Be Well Day. On this day, every Cognita school collapsed the curriculum in order to focus solely on wellbeing, with activities and events that involved the entire school community of students, parents and employees.

Our schools focus on wellbeing throughout the year, but together on this dedicated day we celebrated our collective commitment to wellbeing as a global family. It is an annual reminder of the priority we place on equipping young people with the confidence and resourcefulness that prepares them to grow, thrive and find their success in a fast-changing world.
