English schools in Latin America
Colegio Gran Bretaña was founded in September 1997 with the aim of offering children in Bogotá a high quality education in a challenging international environment for learning. The programme of study is based on the National Curriculum of England and Wales, delivered in English, with the addition of a global approach to social studies, the Colombian Sociales programme, and Spanish language tuition for all students. The school is a distinct choice for members of the English-speaking community in Bogotá, and for children of all nationalities who have, or desire to have, a working knowledge of the English language and curriculum.
By identifying each individuals' needs and targets, Colegio Gran Bretaña promotes the fulfilment of each person's potential in striving for excellence. We help students foster inquisitive and analytical minds, so that they may learn skills and technology that will guide their studies and approach to life long after they have left us. We emphasise respect for the culture, feelings and values of self and others as the basis for purposeful participation in the global community.
