One of my earliest memories of Radley College was standing outside the Precentor's room, waiting to be escorted in for my choir audition and turning to my fellow Shell and telling him that ‘I really can’t sing so don’t expect any wonders’, with him replying, rather pleased ‘Me neither’. I went into that room on my first day scared and nervous, but came out of it a confident young man, willing to throw himself head first into any challenge that Radley had on offer, whether it be a social debating competition, which I am currently preparing for, or a particularly challenging sports fixture. Radley has managed to give me that confidence to try new things.
I really enjoy taking part in debates and attending lectures, and at Radley you’re never at a loss with choice. In addition, my major passion at Radley is sport, and with the numerous opportunities here at Radley, for example the rowing tank, it is difficult not to improve your sporting skills.
Radley really has turned me into the person I am today, a young, confident, outgoing boy who is ready for anything.
