Our boys had a fantastic time at the Independent Schools’ Ski Championships in Sestriere, Italy in December. They returned with exceptional results, a testament to their outstanding racing throughout the championships.

The ISSC aims to immerse the boys in the social nature of winter sports. Five days of structured training followed by friendly competitive skiing and a gala prize-giving ceremony to round off the week.

The strengths of each boy contributed to Radley’s success. Stiff competition from other top sporting schools couldn’t stop three overall team prize wins, Slalom Senior, Giant Slalom Senior, and Combined Senior. A true team effort! Congratulations to Freddy (6.2, K), who won both the U19 Slalom and U19 Giant Slalom events. This is a hugely impressive achievement and a fitting end to his skiing career at Radley.
