2023 Radley List process, for candidates who were registered before the age of around 4 yrs (and were told they were on the Provisional List), is now underway.
If your son was on the Radley Waiting List, he will now need to follow the Open Entry route.
Timetable for Radley List
May 2020: Conditional offer received including:
- An entry form. Deadline to return form with passport sized photo and pay £250 entry fee: 17th May
- A Guide for Parents including information about the entry process and applicable deadlines.
- Information about Socials and instructions to choose three Socials to visit.
- Importantly, please note that all Radley List candidates must sit the ISEB Common Pre-Test by 30th November 2020 (see below).
21st June 2020: Radley List Virtual Visiting Day: A chance to hear the Warden speak, tour the school, and 'see' a Social (not relevant if your son has an older brother either at Radley now or due to come in 2020/21).
September 2020 to March 2021: Parents were given the option of an interview and an individual meeting with a Tutor at Radley in the Michalemas term, or a group visit to see Socials and an interview in the Lent Term.
This is now being reviewed due to Covid restrictions and we will be in touch with parents as soon as possible.
30th November 2020: Deadline for Radley List boys to sit the ISEB Common pre-test (to be organised and sat at your son’s current school or at a registered invigilation centre). The test is a standardised, age-adaptive measure of ability and attainment. It takes the form of an online assessment consisting of multiple-choice questions in Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning, English and Mathematics. The tests take approximately two-and-a-half hours to complete and can be taken together or at separate times.
22nd January 2021: Deadline to receive a report from your son's current school.
By 1st March 2021: Results sent to Radley List boys as follows.
Unconditional Offer: This will be sent to those that pass at the equivalent of 60% and who have impressed at interview. A non-refundable acceptance fee will be required at this stage. These boys will still be required to sit Common Entrance at 13+ largely for setting purposes. Parents of these boys will also be informed where their son is on our Social Lists.
Review List: A small number of boys are added to this list and are asked to return for another interview in March 2021.
Unsuccessful: This would be sent to candidates we think would not cope with the academic pace at Radley.
23rd April 2021: Deadline to accept unconditional offer.
31 January 2022: Deadline for the entry fee to be refundable.
June 2023: Boys will sit Common Entrance for setting purposes only.
