Moulsford’s academic curriculum has moved away from the full set of Common Entrance exams. It is modern and forward thinking, promotes creativity, collaboration, and cross-curricular connections and as well as preparing boys for senior schools, it develops skills for life.
Games & the Arts
Within an atmosphere of fun, enjoyment and achievement, we strive to promote and develop the natural creative skills and abilities of all boys with great success in music, drama, art and DT. Sport is a vital part of life at Moulsford, and teamwork, the development of self-esteem and social skills, the healthy exercise, as well as the fun, are all equally valuable. Boys in A to F teams regularly represent the school.
Exceptional pastoral care permeates every aspect of life within the school. Our core values of respect, compassion and independence are at the heart of all that we do. Expectations are high, in terms of manners, discipline and general behaviour, and there is a strong rapport between staff and boys. Mental wellbeing for both staff and pupils is taken very seriously. Above all, we want boys to be happy and enjoy coming to school.
15 Scholarships in 2021 – Academic, Drama, Design Technology, Sport, Music.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
We want Moulsford boys to receive the broadest possible education, while remembering that they will learn best when happy and settled. Our down-to-earth, family-focused approach embraces the fact that boys of this age should be having fun at the same time as learning.
Located on the banks of the River Thames, boys have the opportunity to kayak, sail and paddleboard. Flexi boarding gives boys the opportunity to try out boarding before moving to senior school. Moulsford prides itself on sending boys to a wide variety of top independent senior schools.
A brand new state-of-the-art Pre-Prep building is under construction, opening in September 2022. As well as an all-boys Pre-Prep, it will also have a co-ed Pre-School for boys and girls aged three. An outstanding extra-curricular programme is on offer for all boys from Pre-Prep to Year 8. Moulsford is extremely fortunate to have a Forest School site which boys in the Pre-Prep visit weekly. No Saturday school.
