As part of its promise to provide an inspiring world of education, global schools group, Cognita, has joined forces with Arsenal and England national team professional footballer, Beth Mead, to launch the Cognita ENRICH ME programme in the United Arab Emirates.
Designed exclusively to empower students enrolled at the Cognita family of schools in the Middle East, which include the Royal Grammar School Guildford Dubai, Ranches Primary School, Horizon English School and Horizon International School, the Cognita ENRICH ME programme combines everything that enriches students’ lives from sport to music and the arts, with expert coaching provision to provide unparalleled opportunities in football, swimming and academic excellence. The inclusive programme will allow the four schools to expand their curriculum and provide an even higher quality learning experience to the 4,000 students they have enrolled, as well as developing high-performing students to achieve professional results.
The programme’s founding ambassador, Beth Mead, is a truly inspirational sporting figure known around the world as an integral member of the England women’s football team who won the UEFA Women’s Euro Cup for the first time in history earlier this year. Beth’s involvement with the programme will provide the Cognita students with a true role model and give them direct access to the sporting hero’s expert coaching and advice. The students will also be able to learn from her invaluable experience and leadership qualities that have seen her recognised with endless accolades that, include Player of the Tournament and Top Assist Provider in the UEFA Women’s Euro Cup 2022. Designed exclusively by Sean O’Shea, ex-Assistant Manager of top division Swedish club AIK Stockholm, the football programme will provide Cognita students in the Middle East with unmatched pathways to professional sport and will support them to excel in all that they do.
