The Sub-Warden (Mr Ben Holden) is the designated member of staff with responsibility for Safeguarding and the Child Protection Officer (CPO) has responsibility for child protection issues in the school.

In his absence, any concerns or allegations should be referred to the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mrs Lucy Nott, or one of the pastoral team (Miss Suzie Naylor, Mr John Beasley) or direct to the Warden. 

Contact details:

Ben Holden

Sub Warden


I was appointed by Dennis Silk in 1987 to teach Design and Technology and coach rowing. After five years as an assistant teacher, the opportunity to lead the department arose, following the departure of the incumbent HOD. Seven years later, the new millennium started with a move to Tutoring in D Social and in 2004 our children, Ruairidh and Sadhbh arrived. It was with heavy heart that I moved on from D Social in 2011, to begin a new chapter as part of the Senior Management Team. Radley is a unique place and I have always felt immensely proud of the understated excellence demonstrated by our boys in all that they do.

Suzie-Louise Naylor

Head of Academic Music and head of pshe


I started my teaching career at Bradfield College before arriving at Radley in 2000 to become Head of Academic Music. I am a senior examiner and moderator for Edexcel (GCSE/AS/A2 Music) and have taught on the Gifted and Talented programme at Villiers Park. I am a member of the Child Protection team. Proudest achievement: climbing Kilimanjaro with Radleians in 2013. Guilty pleasure: grisly Scandinavian crime novels. 

Lucy Nott

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead


I came to teach at Radley in 2011, following an earlier career in translating and several years as Head of French in a girls' grammar school. I am Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead and a member of the Pastoral Team at Radley. I have been in charge of PSHE since 2012 and am also sub-tutor in H Social. I have three adult children, and my two sons were at Radley. Outside the classroom I enjoy running, and walking my aged dog.
