This year, Radley says farewell to one of its longest-serving members of staff.

When you ask colleagues to describe Ben Holden, the answers are kind, gentle, calm, reassuring and an outstanding servant of the College, with the boys at the forefront of everything he does.
Ben came to Radley in April 1987 as a Craft, Design and Technology teacher. Little did he know that arriving late for an interview with Dennis Silk (Warden) in a borrowed Citroen with its back doors roped together would turn into a career spanning 37 years at the College.

In this tribute, we asked his friends and colleagues to share their memories and asked Ben to reflect on his life at Radley.

In the words of the Warden, Ben has been an astounding servant of the College and he will be much missed by the whole community.

Thank you Ben, for everything. ❤️
