Cognita is a global system of schools. Each Cognita school offers a distinctive curriculum and approach, tailored to the individual context.
Group-wide policies and expectations are set by the parent company (Cognita Holdings Ltd.). These policies and expectations relate to standards for Student Safeguarding, Health & Safety, Financial Management, Data Protection as well as governance and responsibility for operational oversight of the regions (which is devolved to the Regional Chief Executive Officer).
Governance oversight of Student Safeguarding and Health & Safety is executed through the deployment of Independent Reviewers. The Group expects each school to ensure clear systems for listening to and responding to members of the school community, this includes use of annual Voice of the Student, Parent and Employee surveys.
Cognita has four Group senior executives:
- Group Chief Executive Officer
- Group Chief Finance Officer
- Group Chief Education Officer
- Group General Counsel
Cognita is headquartered in London.
Cognita governs and manages each school via one of four regions. Each region has its own Chief Executive Officer and regional team. Responsibility for operational oversight and governance of schools is devolved from the parent company to the Regional Chief Executive Officer. Each region has published documents that provide clarity for the delegated governance relationship between their regional team and their schools. The Regional Chief Executive Officer is accountable to the Group Chief Executive.
Each Head of School is accountable to the Regional Chief Executive Officer.
