A Social

Located at the heart of the college campus, A Social is extremely lucky to have its own astro turf, which is very popular. Members of A Social are able not only to look out at the perfectly cut Radley pitches with an unbeatable view but also to immerse themselves in the more philosophical thoughts of life in the same building where Sir Andrew Motion’s love of poetry was first kindled. The atmosphere around the Social and interaction between all year groups provides a welcoming and comfortable place to spend five years and, whether enjoying a burger from the barbecue outside on Saturdays in the summer to simply relaxing with a mug of hot chocolate in Cocoa in the winter months, it is a great place to unwind after a long day.

Tom Ryder

Tutor of A Social


I have been Tutor of A Social since 2008, having previously been part of the Pastoral Team. When not in the Social I am to be found in the Art studios where I specialise in teaching sculpture. I’m passionate about coaching Colts Rugby and in the summer indulge in open water swimming with the students. My wife Gail, teaches at New College School in Oxford and we have two teenage children.

Sonya Milanova

social sub-tutor


I came to Radley in 2017 to teach History from Shrewsbury School. I read History at Trinity College, Cambridge and have a Masters in Economic History from Kellogg College, Oxford. I am often found in the Library talking about books and encouraging Radleians to read. 
I coach rowing, also as a tool to instill the values of team work, discipline and mental toughness. My favourite moments at Radley are as Resident Sub-Tutor in A-Social talking to boys about their varied interests, encouraging them and getting stuck in a good debate. 
In the holidays I love travelling and photography. 

Jane Morgan

A Social Pastoral Housemistress


I joined Radley College and A Social in the Lent term of 2013. I had previously worked as a Personal Trainer and fitness instructor in Bristol. I run strength and conditioning classes for boys in A Social, as well as Colts Rugby at School.

I love the special pastoral relationship I have with the boys as a PHM, it is a unique and privileged position.

I have two grown up children called Lauren and Tom.
