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."

  • Milestones and Recognitions

    Our End-of-Year faculty and staff meetings follow fast on the heels of graduation: two days of group work, reports, setting up new agendas, and closing up older ones. This year we focused on the working groups’ efforts as we prepare for our evolution as a school in September 2019, with a new schedule and the exciting integration of our social justice, health, equity, and service work. We also enjoyed reviewing student success and understanding more about how they seek and develop it with the guidance of teachers and advisors, As always, we finished these meetings remembering why we chose education as a profession and looking forward to a change of pace during the summer months.

  • Consolidated Goodbyes

    Our last assembly was this past Monday. In a way, it was the beginning of the end as we kicked off the week that leads to graduation. It’s been quite the year for our bi-weekly all-school meetings, ably led by the fabulous four-student assembly coordinators: Andrius Alvarez-Backus ’18, Lindsay Gould ’18, Jalen Holmes ’20, and Saidah Lopez ‘20. Seniors Andrius and Lindsay both revealed that they had fulfilled a childhood (well, from their first day of 9th grade!) dream to be an assembly coordinator, and indeed the two of them, with sophomores Jalen and Saidah, made quite a wonderful foursome.  

  • Entrusted.

    Entrusted.

    So… was it what you expected?

    This was the first question I asked Harmony ’19 and Liam ’18, this year’s student trustees, when we sat down to chat about their experience on the board this year. The response from both of them was a hard and fast no.
