Mission

Colegio Gran Bretaña is founded upon the values of a truly international school community.  We work collaboratively to provide a holistic, inclusive and academically challenging educational experience through the medium of English.
At CGB we inspire and prepare our learners for an evolving world.  Eight essential, and equally important, Foundation Blocks support the day-to-day life of our school and foster intellectually prepared students who discover and embrace the ideals of global citizenship.  Through empathy, and progressive teaching and learning we empower everyone to act on their beliefs, thereby cultivating independent thinkers who are able to meet the demands of the twenty-first century.

Our Enduring Goals
  • To offer a constantly evolving and dynamic curriculum that challenges, excites and prepares.
  • To care about our learners as individuals, ensuring that everyone is included with opportunities to succeed and lead.
  • To offer a rich curricular experience in Spanish language and Colombian cultural studies, thus facilitating an appreciation and affinity for the host country.
  • To provide a safe learning environment in which the values of respect, acceptance and open-mindedness are honoured.
