A different dimension to school life

THE Wind in the Willows-style riverside setting of Moulsford Prep School, surrounded by 30 acres of grounds, provides an idyllic environment for an all-boys prep school, and a different dimension to school life.

THE Wind in the Willows-style riverside setting of Moulsford Prep School, surrounded by 30 acres of grounds, provides an idyllic environment for an all-boys prep school, and a different dimension to school life.

Boys regularly venture up the Thames to Goose Poo Island in kayaks and canoes, or have a history lesson re-enacting the Battle of Trafalgar on the river.

Adventurous activities abound: as well as Forest School for Pre-Prep and an indoor climbing wall, there are plenty of opportunities for fire building, making bows and arrows, and initiative and command tasks amongst others.

Although somewhat of a cliché, boys really can be boys at Moulsford, and they take full advantage of their natural surroundings.



The clear focus of Moulsford is on all-round achievement and helping boys to find their individual strengths and talents — most importantly in the classroom, but also on the sports field, in the performing and creative arts, and more generally as considerate and well-mannered citizens who contribute positively to their community.

Boys mainly join Moulsford in reception and year three, although occasionally spaces become available in other year groups. Flexi- and weekly boarding is optional from year five (age 10), to help prepare those choosing senior boarding schools.

Pupils are prepared for 13+ common entrance or scholarship entry to top independent schools such as Eton, Harrow, Radley, Wellington, Marlborough, St Edward’s Oxford and Bradfield, with a sizeable portion choosing more local options including Abingdon, Magdalen College School, Pangbourne and Shiplake.

A daily bus service runs to and from Shiplake via Henley, with minibus routes bringing pupils from Tidmarsh via Pangbourne and from Watlington.
