English schools in Latin America
Bede´s Grammar School has fixed as its principal aim the establishment and efficient running of a modern, open school, tending towards the development of good, capable, healthy and honourable people, in a heterogeneous setting, respectful of diversity. Its basic principles are: freedom with responsibility, respect for oneself, for others, and for all living things.
Pedagogically, it sees man as an intelligent being living in a social environment, using his intelligence to solve the challenges of its environment, thus acquiring experiences, within which learning takes place. It believes the proper aim of education to be positive, so it encourages free activity, and the freedom to think, feel, act, and to discriminate values. Order, which is an external factor, is necessary. Discipline, on the other hand, touches the innermost springs of conduct, and consists in the voluntary submission of one´s impulses and powers to a regulation which brings efficiency and economy. Bede´s promotes the development of the intellectual, artistic and physical powers of each unique individual to his/her maximum expression.
Bede´s is Centre Nº AR 401 of the University of Cambridge (CIE). Through the preparation for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), and AICE (Advanced International Certificate of Education) it provides qualifications and services that are relevant, accurate and reliable, nationally & internationally recognized.
Several local universities (UCA, ITBA, St. Andrew´s, CEMA) have offered special conditions of entry to students who have passed these examinations.
In addition the School has signed special agreements with the Salvador, Belgrano and Austral Universities.
