Winpenny School Mexico City aims to be a leading British International School using contemporary approaches to teaching and learning, and state-of-the-art technology to develop well-rounded, confident individuals with high academic standards.
Winpenny first opened its doors in September 1992. Its original location was a four-bedroomed house in Calle de Pedregal in Lomas de Virreyes. Miss Marian, originally from Yorkshire, England arrived in Mexico in 1969. She has nearly 50 years’ experience teaching and leading schools in Mexico City and co-founding Winpenny School.
Marian Winpenny and her eldest son Melvyn T. Winpenny founded the school with just five children, one 5 year-old, two 4 year-olds and two 3 year-olds. Early on that same year, parents asked Miss Marian to open a group for 2 year-olds. Due to Miss Marian’s reputation as an excellent English educator, the school quickly expanded. By the end of the first year, the school had already grown to accommodate 27 children and three more teachers. Every year after, the school continued to grow and new grades were added.
This institution is a scam. The "education" provided to my children is sub-par at best. The ownership is more concerned with making money than with taking the health and well being of students into account. If your child has any form of disability, this is not a school for them. With three floors and no elevators, they are unable to accommodate even a sprain or fractured leg.
The star ratings are for the following:
Facilities: 1 star for the above mentioned
Academics: 2 stars, the teachers are passionate but the school lack resources.
Teachers: 3 stars, my child loved their teachers but the school obviously does not
Sports: 1 star, no sports offered. The basketball court is in such bad shape.
Music & Arts: 1 star, I️ did not pay the tuition to have my kid finger paint in secondary.
Science & Tech: 1 star, my child informs me that tech classes are held in a shed outside of the music room.

I like its friendly, family centred atmosphere. Children are well cared for and looked after. The curriculum follows the IPC and British standards.
Good school, good community, parents are nice. School really focuses inclusion and a good spirit. My daughter's classmates were amazing very nice and well rounded kids. She always tells me she loves the school and wakes up wanting to go to school every day.
Lack of professionalism and good treatment. Regrettably, knowing that there is no quota, in any case invite to make the payment of an evaluation. In addition, the evaluation lasts only 10 minutes. The facilities leave much to be desired. If you are looking for an international school and of good quality, this school is definitely not an option.
