G Social is situated on the southern edge of the Radley campus, behind the stunning Chapel and 18th Century Mansion and conveniently next to the Medical Centre. Further, it is surrounded by lovely scenic grounds and is fortunate in having a large ‘patch’ on which the boys play football, croquet and paddle tennis.
The Social was fully refurbished in the summer of 2014 and benefits from a large kitchen area which can cater for all 68 boys at once. Thus it is a focal point of the boarding house. ‘Cocoa’ evenings are fun and good natured where boys of all ages, as well as staff, interrelate.
Chess is a particular favourite of the boys, with both table tennis and pool being played competitively in the Games Room. The Social approaches all the inter-Social competitions with enthusiasm, determination and passion, but never forgets that humility is a virtue. The range of talent within Social always means the boys give a good account of themselves.
G Social prides itself on being a united, vibrant and enjoyable place in which to live and we believe we add to the spirit of Radley College.
