The Wingate School is a British International School in Mexico City which offers an educational programme focussed on academic excellence, creativity and human formation. The school aims to form a community of critical thinkers who have a multicultural perspective and strong social commitment.
This enables each child to fulfil his or her potential for intellectual, emotional, social and moral development.
We aim to be a source of inspiration for our pupils so that they recognise the value of learning, self-discipline and helping others.
Incorporated into the SEP (the Mexican Ministry of Education), we are an accredited Cambridge International School and offer the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), as well as the globally recognised Cambridge programme.
The Wingate School has been awarded the Foundation Certificate of the British Council’s International School Award and was voted “One of the 10 best international schools in Latin America” in January 2019.
The International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC) is a research-based curriculum recognising global best practice in early childhood education. It supports key areas of learning through holistic enquiry and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development.
The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a comprehensive and creative curriculum for 6 to 12 year olds. It is taught through units of work which embrace a wide range of themes. It is a real process of learning with specific learning goals for every subject. The IPC inspires children to learn in exciting ways and also provides them with transferable skills for later life in this ever changing and most international world.
The Wingate School currently offers Forms 1, 2 and 3 in the Lower Secondary School. Students follow the Cambridge Secondary curriculum and are taught a range of subjects by subject specialists which lead onto IGCSEs.
Our daughters are classic third culture kids, and over our four years at TWS they have grown so much more comfortable in their own skin; having developed a deep sense of belonging to a mix of cultures whilst respecting and celebrating all cultures. The international community and emphasis on mutual respect have all been a huge asset. The School of Character classes have provided an important forum to encourage and guide our children to be good citizens; to give back, be kind, courteous and respectful.
Their staff are kind and professional. They have created an environment with exceptional quality teachers that truly care for the well being of the students and a learning environment that is a fun and encouraging space for the children to thrive.
"I have been working in schools for more than 20 years and I can say that this is one of the best working and learning environments. I love that people work together and support each other. Leadership is seen as a position of service and support. Students learn in a creative, kind and nature-surrounded environment. I have made wonderful friends and have learned and grown at the Wingate School Mexico. They are true to their motto."
"Wingate es una escuela con gran sentido de humanidad y ayuda al prójimo. Los niños del colegio son increíbles seres humanos guiados por un excelente equipo."
"The students here are really special. They're bright, creative, funny, hardworking, and fully individual. IPC is the curriculum I wish I were taught when I was in Primary School. Mexico City is one of the most beautiful, dynamic, and vibrant places I've ever lived in."
"The Wingate School is my second home. As a parent and member of staff, TWS always brightens up my day."
"I am incredibly grateful to The Wingate School for all the support, advice and encouragement I have received during the past two years. This is an excellent school for anyone, but especially for those just starting their career in education; it's a wonderfully nurturing environment for staff and students alike."
"With a rich cultural and educational environment, the range of classroom projects and content of the school is most impressive"
"We are very happy we chose The Wingate School for our 6 year old daughter. She is always happy to go to school, and the staff and teachers are great. We are confident that this school will help prepare our kids for the big world ahead"
