G Social is situated on the southern edge of the Radley campus, behind the stunning Chapel and 18th Century Mansion and conveniently next to the Medical Centre. The fact that it sits on the periphery of the campus means we overlook scenic countryside and the distance from the heart of the school gives the boys a sense of leaving school behind and going home at the end of the day. The location also means there is plenty of space for our beloved “patch”, which hosts many hours of football, touch rugby and even the odd game of cricket or volleyball. Additionally, we have our very own 5-a-side astroturf which is very popular indeed.
The Social was fully refurbished in the summer of 2014 and benefits from a large kitchen area which can cater for all 68 boys at once. Thus, it is a focal point of the boarding house. ‘Cocoa’ evenings are fun and good natured where boys of all ages, as well as staff, interrelate. The Games Room offers a space to play table tennis and pool.
The boys are very proud of their Social and they approach all the inter-Social competitions with enthusiasm, determination and passion, but never forget that humility is a virtue. G Social prides itself on being a united, vibrant and enjoyable home away from home and we believe we add to the spirit of Radley College.
