Moulsford is a thriving, independent day and boarding school of 370 pupils near Wallingford in South Oxfordshire, set in tranquil and picturesque grounds on the banks of the River Thames.

A Moulsford education is directly relevant for life in the 21st century, instilling in the children a blend of academic rigour and life skills which gives them the platform and confidence to thrive at their senior schools, universities, the workplace, and personal lives.

I am absolutely delighted that Moulsford is to become fully co-educational, admitting Year 3 girls from 2026.  For full details please click here. The Pre-Prep (Pre-School to Year 2) has been successfully co-educational since September 2023, and we thoroughly look forward to welcoming girls to the Prep School. 

The key distinguishing feature of a Moulsford education has always been the quality of our offering in all areas: academic, pastoral and extra-curricular and this will not change.  As a co-educational school we will continue to provide an outstanding education for both boys and girls, preparing them for a wide range of leading day and boarding senior schools in the country.

Rated as ‘Excellent’ in all categories in its recent March 2022 ISI inspection, Moulsford offers an outstanding education with a focus on providing exceptional pastoral care. Our goal is the happiness and fulfilment of every child, and the School’s values of Kindness, Courage and Curiosity are key in supporting this aim.

At Moulsford, the message is straightforward. We want to ensure that every child is listened to, supported, encouraged and given the opportunity to flourish. We strive for excellent academic achievement, with foundations laid in the Pre-School to promote curiosity and a love of learning. 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.

As a school and as teachers, our goal is to engage, enthuse and inspire our pupils in all that they do. From maths to music, reading to rugby, and chemistry to kayaking, we aim high and encourage all of our pupils to ‘go for it’ and give of their best in all that they do.

The best way to measure our success is to visit the school, soak up the atmosphere for yourself, and meet the pupils and staff who make up our warm and very special community. 

You will find confident, self-assured, well-mannered children who understand and appreciate their place in a fast-changing world, together with committed and talented teachers who provide excellent role models for them.

In the Prep School, whilst the majority of pupils come in daily, our boarding house offers flexi and weekly boarding - the boarding ethos permeates through and touches all aspects of the school. As well as offering 'away from home' experience and promoting independence, this option also gives excellent preparation for those who may go on to boarding senior schools.

Children progress from Moulsford to the UK’s leading independent schools, many with scholarships, but all with their feet firmly on the ground, equipped with the skills to make the very most of their talents and the opportunities that come their way. 

We look forward to meeting you and your children soon.
