We want Radley to be a place of real diversity, seeking out and attracting boys who possess the qualities to make the most of themselves and help transform the lives of those around them.

Our ambition is to be able to enable the brightest and best to study here and play an active part in all aspects of Radley life. We want to attract boys from any background: those who can afford full fees, partial fees or no fees at all.

With the growing generosity and recent support of donors to the Radley Foundation, in 2015-2016 over 40 boys received the bursarial help that enabled them to come to and remain at Radley.  Yet our ambition goes far beyond this.  

We want to enable 20% of the college (up to 150 boys) to get the financial help they need

Crucially, the bursaries we provide will not only transform the lives of the boys who receive them.  Indirectly, their presence, character and talents will change the lives of everyone they meet and engage with, both in College and beyond. The Funds listed below directly support this mission by providing Bursaries and Scholarships to boys who would otherwise be unable to enjoy the benefits of a Radley education:

Scholarships & Bursaries - Immediate Use Fund

To enable the College to give 20% of boys coming to Radley the financial help they need.

Including named Funds:

Armed Forces Fund

Funding the education of sons and daughters of Forces Personnel killed or wounded while serving their country.

Richard Morgan Award

An 'immediate use' Fund to widen entry and support talented boys whose families could not otherwise afford the fees.

Hugo Rutland Memorial Fund

Help for current Radley parents facing unforeseen crisis and financial difficulty.

Greater China Scholarship Fund

A means-tested award for boys from mainland China and Hong Kong to attend Radley for 5 years.


Scholarships & Bursaries Endowment Fund

We hope to build a Scholarhips & Bursaries Endowment Fund of sufficient size to enable us to continue to support the need for financial assistance of the longer term.

Including named Fund:

Silk Fund

A capital fund to widen entry and fund talented boys whose families could not otherwise afford the fees.


The boys – and the talents, passions and perspectives that they bring – will come from diverse backgrounds.

We are inspired by Sewell’s founding vision for Radley that “every tenth boy should receive his education free” - supporting boys from much less-advantaged backgrounds.

We also want to help deserving boys from families who once might have afforded a private education but no longer can – boys from what is frequently called the ‘squeezed middle’ of society.
