Head of School

Emma Wakelin
I have been in teaching and education for 17 years, as a class teacher, middle leader, senior leader and director. I have worked in successful international schools in Slovenia, Croatia, China and now Mexico. I moved to Mexico in 2017 and joined an international school in the south of the city. There I became a globally recognized teacher and leader of High Performance Learning, a world class schools curriculum. <br /> In 2020, I joined the TAE community as Deputy Director and in 2023 became the School General Director. I am passionate about providing students with a world class education. I will never settle for less because I believe all children, no matter their age, deserve the very best.
