I was the referee for the Transplant Games at your Sports Centre. I want to give my thanks to all the staff who work there; all were very helpful and accommodating, helping with the set up and with the packing away of all the equipment.

– Transplant Games

The Rowing Tank is epic! It was genuinely massively appreciated and I took a huge amount from it. Rory was a star and a great help, passing on some really useful nuggets of advice which we will continue to work on as we take our training forward.

St Peter’s Chapel is one of the most beautiful buildings in Oxfordshire. With 807 seats, a large balcony and a newly-built organ, Chapel is the figurative and literal heart of the Radley College community.

The building is available for services, recitals, concerts and lectures. The unique layout allows for pews to be removed to create space for orchestras, grand pianos and AV equipment.

The Carol Service went extremely well, and we received some lovely feedback. The afternoon went so smoothly, which was down to the Radley Team’s hard work. The organist was wonderful!
