Radley College is an international boarding school for boys, and is situated in 800 acres of stunning grounds close to Oxford. There are around 690 students at the school, who come from a range of backgrounds not only from the UK, but from all across the world.
Over twenty subjects are on offer, with the college following a traditional route, and with Mandarin politics being the only notable difference. Special learning support strategies are given to each student, especially those wishing to receive the best advice and help in gaining entry into Cambridge or Oxford universities.
The school provides a Shell programme of learning, in which boys are taught among other subjects: art, biology, history, design and technology, theology, physics and music. From this the boys choose subjects for GCSE along with their core subjects.
Radley is one of the top academic league schools in the UK, whose reputation for academic brilliance is enhanced by the large amount of students who go on to study at Oxbridge institutions.
There are twenty sporting disciplines on offer, with tennis, rugby, rowing and water polo among the many to choose from.
Musically there are the many choirs which students can join according to age and seniority, and several classical music programmes, too. There are a wide range of practical music lessons concentrating on the piano, violin and oboe, available for both group and individual classes
There are many stand-out facilities at Radley College, one of which is the Silk Hall, a concert hall specially designed for classical performances with seating for both audience and assembled choirs. There is also a theatre and a facility unit for music technology, including its own state-of-the-art recording studio. There are acres of pitches and courts, every single one designed for each of the individual sporting disciplines.
