The school was founded in 1480 by William Waynflete. Waynflete, believing in education as a facilitator of social mobility, wanted to found a school of an entirely new kind: a school that would be at the heart of that new and exciting proposition, the university. Quickly, MCS became one of the country's leading schools.
Today's MCS, proud inheritor of these traditions, remains just that. We believe that this is, in part, because of the remarkable relationship we enjoy with the global university which surrounds us.
The MCS Junior School is an intimate school of the highest quality, for boys aged 7 to 11. The Junior School has its own Head, Mr Tim Skipwith and dedicated team of specialist teachers, whilst being an integral part of MCS and with full access to Senior School staff and facilities. The school, with a history of educating young pupils extending back to 1480, prides itself on the quality of its pastoral, academic and extra-curricular provisions.
A lot happens at MCS. This website will tell you more, especially recent News, coverage in the Press, the Red Diary, and Reports by Inspectors. There is additional information for prospective parents and pupils, including details of Open Mornings and Afternoons, in the Admissions section. We very much look forward to welcoming you at one of these occasions.
