Beautiful quadrangles and cloisters, boys in gowns and teachers known as “dons” and a headmaster called “The Warden”. Radley College’s sprawling self-contained estate in prime Oxfordshire countryside was founded by an Oxford University Fellow, the Reverend William Sewell.
All this space must be conducive to academic study, evidenced by excellent examination results (90% A* to B at A level) and around 13% going up to Oxbridge each year. Radleians are also very strong in the sporting arena and make full use of their superb facilities. Over 20 teams play rugby in the winter term and regularly come out champions on the Thames when rowing takes over in the summer. The number of sports on offer is long: golf (they have their own 9 hole course), swimming, tennis, squash, real tennis, fives, badminton, cricket, hockey, football, beagling, cross-country… and the list goes on.
At Radley, it is all about the pursuit of excellence both inside the classroom and out, on encouraging boys to develop their talents and discover new interests.
