What is the first step to start the admissions process?

The first step in the admissions process is to make an enquiry by contacting our Registrar, Mrs Jill Morrin on 01491 651438 or [email protected], or by completing the online enquiry form to receive a prospectus. Following this we would encourage you to come for a visit before formally registering your child and paying a registration fee.

What are the entrance requirements for Moulsford?

For our Pre-School and Reception there is no selection process at this stage. Early registration is both advisable and advantageous, as the date of registration will be taken into consideration when offering places, and the year group can fill up well in advance. For Years 1 and 2, children will be invited for an informal assessment, joining their potential peers during a normal school day.

Children joining us in Year 3 or above will be invited for a formal entrance assessment, and we also request a comprehensive report from the child’s current school. The assessment day consists of Maths and English exercises, as well as involvement in various extra-curricular and PE activities. The aim is to establish how children respond to the set tasks and the environment within their peer group. Moulsford is not overtly academically selective, however we do want to be sure that children will not only cope but thrive here on an academic level.
