Guidance notes on current charges 2020/2021.

The following, whilst not comprehensive, is intended to explain the basis for certain charges which will appear on this year's invoices. 

Fees in Advance

Radley College operates a Fees in Advance Scheme which allows an individual to make payment of all, or part, of the College fees by means of a lump sum composition fee.

This fee is usually paid before a boy starts at the College, but may also be paid during his time here.

Only boys registered for entry are eligible for the scheme. Parents are quoted the amount to be paid for a credit of £100 per term, for the number of terms the boy is at the College. Larger sums can be purchased pro rata.

The scheme is competitive and the rates are under frequent review. Moreover, since its use helps the College, it indirectly benefits both present and future Radleians. It should be noted, however, that the payment of a composition fee does not guarantee or assist in obtaining a place at the College, nor does it exempt a parent from payment of entrance or registration fees.

In the event of a boy deciding to attend another fee-paying school instead, the scheme will set up a standing order and transfer the amount paid. There is no financial penalty for this service.

The scheme is administered separately from other College accounts. At present, there are over 120 boys in the scheme and approximately £9M of future fees are covered.

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.

Senior Master
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.
