Head's Corner

Meet Jane

Jane Moulding joined The Cambridge School in Weston in 2002, and is one of the longest serving heads of school since our founding in 1886. Throughout her time as head, Jane has helped build a CSW that is true to its progressive roots and one that has remained open to new ideas, innovation and engagement, and to exploration and change.
 
During the last 15 years, the school has seen both financial and enrollment growth as well as expansion of campus facilities, including the addition of the Health & Fitness Center, the Garthwaite Center for Science and Art and the Warren House dormitory. With Jane as head, the school also led the launch of the Progressive Education Lab, a visionary teacher-training program for aspiring progressive educators which opened in the fall of 2012.

“CSW is like a big playground of ideas, each one of them ready to bounce off another, and in my time here, I have thrived on connections and creativity. More and more, I realize how small our world is and it makes me want to learn more about the ways we can live together and with each other in that world. I want our community to engage with the world at large, to channel the power and knowledge of our world to ensure that CSW graduates continue to go out into it and help change it for the better.”

Jane, who grew up in Warwickshire, England, earned her undergraduate degree in English and German literature from the University of Warwick and her teaching certificate from the University of Nottingham. She also received a Master of Liberal Arts from Harvard University. Jane has taught in schools around the world, from her native England to The Netherlands, Libya, and now, Massachusetts.
 
Before joining CSW, Jane was the director of the middle school at Buckingham, Browne, & Nichols School in Cambridge, Mass. She has also served on the board of directors for the Association of Independent Schools of New England and as chair of the Seeking Educators of Color Consortium.
 
“I want the world to know who we are and how we equip students to solve problems, live creatively and lead intelligently. I hope we can continue to be a place where new ideas are played with, where diversity of thinking and being can be respected and harnessed."

    Jane's Pocket Change: Fellowship

    The Progressive Education Lab (PEL), founded by four school partners (CSW, Putney, Unquowa and Calhoun) back in 2011, is a wonderful fellowship program that brings novice teachers into the profession. PEL’s mission is to make the fellows “agents of change.” For me, one of the great professional delights I’ve experienced during my time here at CSW has been helping to establish the PEL program and to ensure its ongoing growth to serve young progressive educators beginning their careers.
  • C'est mon école maintenant...

    An unexpected outcome of the recent visit by Ivory Coast artist Aboudia was the proclamation he made 48 hours into his time with us: “CSW, c'est mon école!” And a truly wonderful outcome it was, pleasing to us all and to NYC gallerist Ethan Cohen '79 who made the introduction between Aboudia and CSW.
  • Jane's Pocket Change: Community Matters

    Each year as we teeter on the edge of spring here in New England, I find myself considering the richness of the CSW landscape and all that is going on at this very key time of year in the life of a school.

    This week, during our admissions revisit days, we welcome many visitors to campus as they determine what school they will be calling “home” next year. Testimonials and information will be offered by our parent panelists and our student ambassadors. The classrooms and corridors will buzz with questions, comments and comparisons.
