The Edron Academy (El Colegio Británico) A.C. is a non-profit school in Álvaro Obregón, Mexico City. 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.
The school has appointed Mr. Eamonn Mullally as Permanent Head Teacher from November 12th, 2014.
On September, 2014 The Edron Academy went under an inspection carried out by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). The findings of the inspection were very positive and The Edron Academy became the first school to meet the stringent standards laid down by the British Government for independent schools in the UK.
Additionally, The Edron Academy became the first COBIS Accredited Member school in Mexico.
