Co-Educational Pre-Prep

Our state-of-the-art Pre-Prep building opened in 2022 and since September 2023 now welcomes girls age 3-7.

The Curriculum

Our academic curriculum is forward thinking, promotes creativity, collaboration, and cross-curricular connections and as well as preparing pupils for senior schools, it develops skills for life.

Games & the Arts

Within an atmosphere of fun, enjoyment and achievement, we develop the natural creative skills and abilities of all children 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.  A to F teams regularly represent the school.

Pastoral Care

Exceptional pastoral care permeates every aspect of life within the school. Our core values of kindness, courage and curiosity 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 pupils. Mental wellbeing for both staff and pupils is taken very seriously. Above all, we want children to be happy and enjoy coming to school.

Destination Schools

Moulsford sends boys to a wide variety of top independent senior schools, many with scholarships and awards. In 2023, 58 boys progressed to 17 senior schools with 9 scholarships.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We want Moulsford pupils to receive the broadest possible education, while remembering that they will learn best when happy and settled. Our down-to-earth, family-focussed approach embraces the fact that children of this age should be having fun at the same time as learning.

Outstanding Characteristics

 Located on the banks of the River Thames, pupils have the opportunity to kayak, sail and paddleboard. A varied extra-curricular programme is offered to all pupils from Pre-Prep to Year 8. A Forest School site is visited weekly by the Pre-Prep. Flexi boarding gives older boys the opportunity to try out boarding before moving to senior school. No Saturday school.
