It was founded in 1847 by the Reverend William Sewell, fellow of Exeter College, Oxford, to provide a public school education on the principles of the Church of England. Its agreeable and well-equipped buildings lie in a beautiful 800-acre estate, close to Abingdon and Oxford. Between the ages of 13 and 18 boys are at Radley for the majority of their time to fulfill their talents.
Sixth Form Boarding School
The educational course at this Sixth Form boarding school is designed to teach boys the value of hard work and an intelligent management of time. We aim for breadth in a boy’s academic programme, we try to ensure intellectual stimulus both inside and outside the curriculum, and we seek to achieve an easy command of, and familiarity with, Information Technology. We also endeavour to train Sixth Formers in the ability to research and synthesise for themselves, to learn independently. Beyond that we hope to awaken in Radleians an appreciation of literature and the arts so that they can gain real pleasure from pursuing these interests in their adult lives. When a Radleian leaves the Sixth Form Boarding School, it is expected that he will have those attributes necessary both to command a worthwhile place in Higher Education and – beyond that – to compete effectively in the market place for jobs in the 21st century.
