MOULSFORD
BOYS' PREP SCHOOL

Senior School Destinations


One of the key roles of the Headmaster is advising parents on senior schools.  Having been a Headmaster since 2007, Ben Beardmore-Gray has a wealth of experience in this field, as well as very close links with both the Heads and Registrars of senior schools. 

A close dialogue is established between Moulsford, parents and senior schools, and parents are guided through the 13+ entry process.

Moulsford prepares boys for a wide range of both boarding and day, co-ed and single sex senior schools.  For those going on to board, Moulsford prepares boys for Radley, Wellington, Marlborough, Eton, Harrow, St Edward’s Oxford, Bradfield, Winchester, Millfield, Stowe and Sherborne.  For those choosing a day school, Abingdon, Magdalen College Oxford, Pangbourne, Shiplake and The Oratory are the natural choices.

Over the last five years, our pupils have gone on to the following schools at 13+:
