Cognita celebrates excellence with its 2018 O-wards

Cognita O-Wards 2018

At our Global Education Leadership Conference 2018, we celebrated the schools and their leaders who have demonstrated exemplary performance, leadership and educational excellence in the last 12 months.

The winners of the 2018 Cognita O-wards are:

Great Place to Work 2018 

Small school winner: Charterhouse Square School, UK

Large school winner: Colegio Pumahue Curauma, Chile

Investing in our people to be a Great Place to Work is a priority for Cognita. The Great Place to Work O-ward recognises excellence in the culture and inspiration a school leadership team creates for their people. The key measure for this O-ward is Voice of the Employee score, which looks at core areas of the employee experience, including learning and development, and communication.


Most Supported by Parents 2018  

Large school winner: Instituto GayLussac, Brazil

Small school winner: Downsend Pre-Prep School, Ashtead, UK

Most improved winner: British School of Barcelona Sitges, Spain

This O-ward category recognises excellence in being distinctive so that families choose to stay at our schools. It also ties in particularly to the emphasis on community within the Cognita Way.


Living and Breathing the Cognita Way 2018

Winner: Cognita Brazil

Winner: St. Andrews International School Dusit, Thailand

The Cognita Way comprises six focal points we know to be present in the most successful schools: energised leadership, personalised learning, people growth, community, innovation and brilliant basics. The two winners in this O-ward category were selected for fully embracing the Cognita Way in all aspects of their schools.


The Cognita Education O-ward 2018

Winner: Australian International School, Singapore 

Nominated by the Cognita Education Advisory Board, this O-ward seeks to recognise a school that especially enables its students to achieve high academic standards while also delivering a holistic education. A particular stand-out feature for this winner has been the opening of their Early Years facility in the Early Learning Village.

CEO O-ward 2018 

Winner: Southbank International School, UK

Winner: Stamford American School, Hong Kong

The measures for this O-ward are ‘excellence’ and going ‘above and beyond’. The two winners were chosen because they are true models of what it means to collaborate and share with the Cognita family of schools.


Congratulations to all of the 2018 O-ward winners on these well-deserved accolades.
