History & Governance

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.

After 12 years, it was necessary to relocate the school. The present campus in Cuajimalpa opened in August 2004 with nearly 200 children from Tiny Tots to Grade 4. After two years in temporary accommodation, the children moved into the current school building. The school then opened its doors to Secondary School students in August 2008.

Today we have over 550 students from Tiny Tots to Grade 12. Currently, the school has over 60 teachers including many professionals recruited internationally from England, USA, Europe and Latin America.

The school is governed by a Board of Directors and the founders.
