Cognita is a global leader in independent education, committed to seeing children achieve their full potential.

Downsend School is a proud member of the Cognita global family of schools. We benefit from the support that being part of a global group brings, as well its culture of academic excellence.

Downsend School is proud to uphold Cognita’s values through its excellent curriculum, caring school environment and extra-curricular activities.
