Wellbeing is the foundation of a Cognita Education and it is integral to our overall purpose of ‘Providing an inspiring world of education: building self-belief and empowering individuals to succeed’.
We will ensure that we have a Cognita-wide focus on wellbeing and will focus our action under these three areas:
One of our Be Well initiatives is Global Be Well Day (GBWD), an annual event when our schools collapse the curriculum for one day to focus entirely on wellbeing.

Beth Kerr joined the global leadership team at Cognita in 2019. Beth is an experienced teacher specialising in pastoral care and wellbeing, with an MSc from UCL in Child and Adolescent Mental Health. She is passionate about the role of educators in improving the wellbeing of young people today and is regularly called on by the media to provide guidance and commentary on this vitally important topic.
On 27th September 2019, 25th September 2020 and 30th September 2021, our global schools family celebrated Global Be Well Day. On this day, Cognita schools collapsed the curriculum in order to focus on wellbeing, with activities and events that involved the entire school community of students, parents and employees. Our next Global Be Well Day will be 30th September 2022.
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.Highlights from Global Be Well Day
