Our Extra-Curricular programme is an essential part of our holistic educational vision.

Enrichment through extra-curricular activities plays a crucial role in the holistic development of our children. These activities provide opportunities for pupils to explore their interests, develop new skills, and build self-confidence outside the boundaries of the traditional classroom.

By offering a diverse range of after-school programmes, such as sports, STEAM, visual and performing arts, languages, and life skills, we encourage our children to discover their passions and unlock their full potential. Participation in extra-curricular activities not only fosters personal growth but also strengthens social bonds, teamwork, and a sense of community among our pupils, making for a well-rounded educational experience.

Examples of free, staff-led Extra-Curricular Activities (ECAs) include:


A unique extra-curricula enrichment programme exclusive to Cognita schools in the Middle East.

ENRICH ME is an initiative that brings market-leading enrichment provisions to support each school's curriculum. Designed exclusively to empower students enrolled at the Cognita family of schools in the Middle East, the ENRICH ME programme combines expert coaching and talent development in football and swimming.
