Headmaster Ben Beardmore-Gray commented, "We are delighted with the findings of the Inspection and would like to thank the whole Moulsford community - staff, boys, parents and Governors - for the part they all played in achieving this super result. ISI informed us that the parent questionnaires were extremely complimentary about the school, and we are very grateful to all parents for their support for the school.

"The ISI Inspection process is very thorough, and the inspection week itself was extremely intense. While the inspectors are making their judgements on what they saw during the week, preparation for inspection is a continual process over several years. We are equally aware that the ISI report represents a snapshot in time, and while the school welcomes the findings, there is no room for complacency, and we are already preparing for the next inspection.

"Particular thanks to the whole Moulsford staff for all their hard work, which has been pivotal to this excellent result."
