In the UK, Cognita Schools runs over 30 independent schools, many of which are in London, Surrey and other places in the south of England, which could be good options for BN(O) families. Class size is kept small in Cognita Schools, with an average of 15 students a class. This will gradually go down to about 10 a class during GCSE years and five during A-level years. To support migrant and expat families, Cognita Schools allow students to start school during term time (instead of asking students to wait until the start of next term), to minimize disruption to learning.
