Structure and Ownership

Cognus Limited was spun out from the London Borough of Sutton in November 2016 as a stand-alone limited company.

Our main shareholder remains the London Borough of Sutton, but we also invite schools to become shareholders in our company โ€“ and where possible offer reduced prices to them when buying from us.

There is an annual Shareholder meeting (AGM), where the company formally shares itโ€™s accounts and business plans, and discusses items requiring shareholder sanction and approval.

The company has its own Board, comprising of a Chair, five Non-Executive Directors and the Managing Director of the company.

The Managing Director runs the company on a day to day basis, working with a senior management team, team managers and all our front line and supporting employees.
