Radley has always inspired boys to become outstanding young men and we believe that our core values should never change: the timeless Christian qualities of humanity, compassion and understanding of others. Yet as the world changes, so we must look at things afresh: we must make our values and the educational opportunity we provide genuinely relevant in a world of technology and expanding diversity, cultures and attitudes. We want Radleians to be able to engage with the world around them, to be those who care for and about others and who can and will do so in any environment or place. We want all our boys to be ready to embrace the challenges of a future not yet realised.
To do this, we seek to secure - through our admissions process and funded paces scheme - an intake of boys from different backgrounds; boys with different outlooks and experiences, from different social, cultural and economic circumstances. We must ensure a Radley education remains within the reach of families who might now find an education here beyond them. We must seek boys of talent in all areas: boys who will create a profound and lasting impact on those around them and on the world in which they live. And we must then make sure that the education we offer them is outstanding and lifelong in its effects.
I am a great believer that our core values should never change.
The Four Strategic Pillars
- People – providing opportunities for a greater number of talented and deserving boys, from diverse backgrounds, to enjoy the benefits of a Radley education.
- Place – ensuring that the school provides, and is known for providing, world-class teaching within world-class facilities.
- Partnership – taking seriously our place in the local community and recognising the value of effective collaboration and communication in all we do.
- Purpose – giving all our boys the understanding, skills and global awareness to contribute positively to a changing world.
We invite you to watch two videos which can be found below: Our Vision for Radley and Thank you Radley.
Working together, the Radley community (boys, staff, parents, old Radleians, friends of the College) can realise our vision. Vital to this is the mission of the Radley Foundation.
