Impact of the Foundation

Impact of the Foundation

The Radley Foundation was established in 2000, and we can now look back on twenty years of progress and achievement. Thank you to all who have made this possible.

You can read the latest Impact Report here.

Means-Tested Bursaries

Thanks to the enormous generosity of the donors to the Foundation, from September 2020, Radley was able to offer a record £2.54m to help with fees. 14% of all boys (103) receive some form of means tested fee support.

All means tested bursaries awarded, 2017-2021:

Recently Completed Building Projects

The New Science Centre

The extended and refurbished Science Centre was opened on 16th October 2019 by Prof Sir Nigel Shadbolt, Principal of Jesus College, Oxford. The completed facility provides a 186-seat lecture theatre, new observatory, laboratories and project rooms, interactive periodic table and roof terrace for outdoor experiments.

With increasing numbers of boys taking science at A-level and standard of attainment in the sciences on the rise, this centre for the sciences is a vital and much appreciated addition to the school.

The McKenna Strength and Conditioning Centre

The McKenna Strength and Conditioning Centre, made possible through the generosity of the McKenna family and opened by HRH the Earl of Wessex in June 2018, houses a wide range of resistance-based equipment and cardiovascular machines with audio visual capability and internet connectivity. Designed to maximise sporting potential across all abilities, it officers a state-of-the-art Strength and conditioning provision for cardio, resistance and weights training, benefitting the entire sports programme at Radley.

The Jock Mullard Rowing Tank 

The new Jock Mullard Rowing Tank was 'officially' opened on the 6th of September with a celebratory lunch, followed by a demonstration of the rowing tank by the boys.  This event was held for those who had contributed to the funding, construction and development of the tank over the last 7 years.   Some of those who attended formed crews themselves and tried out the tank and reported it was very realistic, and excellent to be able to see your performance on the several cameras located around the tank linked up to screen at the front.

It was a very special day, as it represented the culmination of a long-held ambition to have a Rowing Tank in the heart of Radley Campus.  It will be a valuable training aid for beginners and for both junior and senior wet-bobs, not only when the river is in flood, but when crews need to sharpen their skills, fitness and togetherness away from the water.
