The Edron Academy (El Colegio Británico) A.C. is a non-profit school in Álvaro Obregón, Mexico City.[1] It was 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. Foulkes, who had previously founded Greengates School, had left by 1961, selling his share to Henry Coehlo.

In 1985, it moved from San Ángel to its present site in a residential area close to the forested hills of Desierto de los Leones. At the same time, it achieved its bicultural status through incorporation with the Mexican education authority.

In 1995 the Edron became an IB world school.[2][3]

The school has appointed Eamonn Mullally as Interim Head Teacher from January 1, 2014.
