As part of the Curriculum Extension Programme in the sixth form, 6.1 boys spend one day per term on an elective programme with girls from Oxford High School. They choose an elective from those offered at both schools and then spend the day immersing themselves in their subject of choice. About half the sixth form girls from Oxford High travel to Radley and are replaced for the day by Radleians travelling in the opposite direction. Some boys choose an elective to reinforce their A level subjects but for others, it is a chance to try something a bit different to broaden their intellectual horizons. The full list of electives is below.
