The Edron Academy (El Colegio Británico) A.C. is a non-profit making institution founded in 1963 by Edward Foulkes, a Welshman who worked in Mexico in the publishing business and as a teacher for the British Council, and by Ronald Stech, a Canadian who became the school's first administrator.
Their vision was to create a learning community in which every child would feel secure, wanted, cared for and free from tension and hostility.
Over the years the school has retained these fundamental values, whilst adapting to change and expansion. In 1985, it moved from San Angel to its present site in a pleasant residential area close to the forested hills of Desierto de los Leones. At the same time, it achieved its bi-cultural status through incorporation with the Mexican education authority.
In 1995 the Edron became an IB world school. Nowadays the Edron is the leading British Mexican school in Mexico City and an accredited member of COBIS.
