Radley College is now one of the only three remaining full boarding schools for boys aged between 13 and 18. Founded nearly 175 years ago the School is proud of its tradition and yet is celebrated for its innovation and dynamism. The school is renowned for added value, outstanding pastoral care and strong community – every boy is known as an individual and the daily evening Chapel and House Cocoa sessions promote the sense of family that is so special to Radley. It is an environment where boys thrive academically and make the most of an enormous range of opportunities on offer – be those our fabulous art and DT rooms or the impressive array of societies and speakers.
