Welcome to the website of The English School – Colegio de Inglaterra!
Our TES community provides a caring, inclusive and, of course, exciting learning environment in a well-managed and well-resourced school that has successfully educated the children of Colombian and international families, the IB way, The English Way, for over 50 years.
We are indeed a learning-focused school that nurtures its young people and prepares them for a world that is overflowing with opportunities and challenges.
Therefore, it is my great pleasure to be Head of School and Rector with a forward-looking team of students, teachers, parents, administration, and support staff that is pushing the limits, whether academically, linguistically, technologically or through the fields of sport and the arts.
We believe in the unique talents of everyone, especially of our wonderful 1600 young students, and it is our joy to guide them forward and give them confidence in their knowledge, their skills and their appreciation of local and global cultures and environments.
What is the most important thing though is the daily experience of working with a community of educators that knows no limits to the enthusiasm and commitment that we have for providing a first class and bilingual education with a comprehensive culture of excellence, The English Way, for all of our students.
We are, indeed, a community that gives a warm, genuine, and welcoming smile to everyone, everywhere, every day.
We look forward to meeting you!
Mr. Jeff Shaw
Head of School and Rector of The English School
