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."

List of 3 news stories.

  • A-Board in Review, with Andrew and Caroline

    It’s impossible to bring up student leadership at CSW, and not talk about Advisory Board, or “A-Board,” as it’s known around campus. This important group of elected students makes formal recommendations to the head of school about school policy, reviewing the student handbook and bringing forth any proposed changes to Town Meeting, a central forum for discussion of important community issues. It’s safe to say that the level of influence that they possess is pretty unprecedented. It’s not every school that will trust its students with so much responsibility. But here at CSW, we do, and they’ve continuously made us proud with their maturity and aplomb.
  • Big News on Campus

    At our opening assembly for the last mod of the year, Rosanna Salcedo, Tad Lawrence and I unveiled CSW’s latest thinking and approach to the Mod System and some exciting news about programming to our students. After a lot of planning and helpful input from community members (faculty, families, and students) we are pleased to let you all know about some changes anticipated for the 2019–20 school year.
  • USC: A CSW Staple

    We have lots of names for student groups on CSW’s campus: clubs, committees, alliance groups, affinity groups, coalitions, governing bodies, and more. One such group is our United Students of Color (USC) group, a community of individuals that seemingly transcends labels. USC offers an important affinity space for students of color to come together to discuss their experiences, and it has also become an integral source of allyship on this campus, not just among its membership, but with other clubs and groups.
