Our Vision for Radley College

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. Our vision is to create global citizens of the future: those who care for and about others (citizens) and who can do so in any environment or place (global). We want all our boys to be ready to embrace the challenges of a future not yet realised.

To do this, we must seek an increased number 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.

We have identified three strategic pillars around which our efforts will be focused:

  • People – providing opportunities for a greater number of talented and deserving boys, from diverse backgrounds, to enjoy the benefits of a Radley education.
  • Placeensuring that the school provides, and is known for providing, world-class teaching within world-class facilities.
  • Purpose – giving all our boys the understanding, skills and global awareness to contribute positively to a changing world.

​We invite you to watch three videos which can be found on the right side of this page: Our Vision for Radley, Thank you Radley and a recording of the Vision Event which happened during the evening on October 17th. 


How will we achieve our ambitions?

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.
