Radley College is an independent boarding school of about 680 boys. Its foundation in 1847 was to offer a different education from that offered by most Victorian public schools. A strong emphasis was to be put on the aesthetic, and the beauty of the estate and the buildings contribute significantly to the atmosphere. The hallmark of the school remains its warmth, generosity and wholeness.
Radley College has a total of 686 pupils, with 282 pupils in the Sixth Form.
