Introduction to 13+ Entry

Introduction to 13+ Entry

Boys are admitted to Radley from the age of 13 and around 145 boys come to Radley in the Shell year. 

The boys join the school in September and should be under 14 on 31st August in the year of entry. We strongly encourage applications from overseas candidates who follow a very similar entry process to UK students. 

2021 and 2022 Entry

Our Admissions process is now largely complete for these years except for Scholarship. We would be delighted to hear from you if your son is a likely scholar.  Please contact the Admissions Office to discuss this further and to arrange a visit.

Arriving in 1994, eight and a half months pregnant, means I am unlikely to forget our first weeks at Radley! Since then I’ve been thoroughly involved in Radley life, not least twelve years in G Social where my husband was Tutor. My career began in sports marketing, then to schools' fundraising and marketing, but, as a keen golfer, the view of Radley’s 8th hole is certainly the best I’ve ever had from a desk.

I came to Radley in 1994 to run the Chemistry Department. This was followed by twelve very happy years as G Social Tutor. When we moved out of the Social in 2010 we had a wonderful sabbatical, including a month teaching in Madagascar, before taking up our new roles: I became Head of Co-Curricular activities and my wife, Vanessa, took over as Registrar. In 2015 I became Head of External Affairs; which involves an overview of Admissions as well as a consideration of everything to do with Radley in the outside world. We have two grown up daughters – Georgina and Lucy – and lots of family in Norfolk, where both our families have lived for generations. We play a lot of golf in the holidays, enjoy beautiful walks on the Norfolk beaches with Nutmeg, the yellow Labrador, and I watch as much of Arsenal FC as I can.
