History of MHS

Moulsham High School first opened in 1938 as two separate schools - Moulsham Senior Boys' School, and Moulsham Senior Girls' School. The two schools combined in 1972 to become the joint Moulsham High School.


1938 School Opening

The official opening of the new Moulsham Schools took place at 3pm on Wednesday 21st September 1938, in the assembly hall of the Senior Boys’ School. Before the ceremony the Mayor of Chelmsford, Councillor J T Bellamy, unveiled a memorial tablet in the entrance hall of the Senior School. In the hand-written Junior Girls’ School log book, Headmistress Miss Rankin recorded that: "All staffs and children from the Senior and Junior Schools attended the final ceremony – unfurling the flag and singing the National Anthem".

The Headteachers of the Boys' and Girls' Senior Schools came to join Moulsham from the Trinity Road schools.
