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."

Join us at the End of Mod 2 Parent Coffee on November 9th

  • Jane's Pocket Change: V.I.R.C.

    Jane Moulding, Head of School
    This past Sunday evening the entire boarding community and I were once again treated to the joy, laughter, and slight irreverence of “Fractured Fairy Tales,” a CSW tradition that goes back many years.

    As a culminating activity of our first All-Boarders Weekend of the year, each dorm is asked to present a short performance or skit based on the following guidelines:

    • Based on a fairy tale, nursery rhyme, or fable.
         (By convention, Disney movies have become fair game.)
    • Everyone in dorm must participate.
    • Includes a song in which everyone participates.
    • Includes a dance in which everyone participates.
    • Incorporates dorm parents and associates in the skit.

    Each year a couple of special aspects are added. This year the students had to incorporate a Finsta or Snapchat interaction as a significant plot point and include the word "gerrymandering" with ease.
  • Jane's Pocket Change: It All Adds Up

    Jane Moulding, Head of School
    Note: This week’s Pocket Change is excerpted from Jane’s opening remarks to the community. For full transcript please click here.

    I would like to personally welcome all of you to our new school year and to our extraordinary community. As we embark upon this year together, I will share the advice that I shared with our students, faculty, and staff—be open to all possibilities. If you believe that all possibilities are open to you, learning and growing without limits, doesn’t it feel good—sort of relaxing and empowering all at once?
