Course Description

Radley's academic program consists of 22.5 hours of courses each week. English Skills, Global Minds workshops, and mentorship are among the topics covered. The maximum number of students in each class is 12. Separate classes are provided to teenagers and juniors.

English Skills

You'll be given a written and spoken exam when you arrive, and you'll be put in an English Skills class that's appropriate for your age and level. Through interesting and interactive lessons, you will improve fundamental skills, technical precision, and spoken fluency. Juniors research and create some of the world's most bizarre homes. Teens will investigate and compare which nations are officially the happiest in the world, as well as why they are the happiest.

Global Minds

Every week, you will learn English as well as all of the Global Minds themes. You'll learn about new topics and gain confidence in key life skills (e.g. critical thinking, problem solving). Learn through conducting research, debating, collaborating, and creating. British Culture, Digital Media, Drama/Music, Green Thinking, Global Futures, and Science & Technology are among the topics covered in the sessions.


A staff 'mentor' will be assigned to you who will assist you in identifying and achieving your own objectives. The mentors will assist you in keeping track of your accomplishments so that you can reach your full potential.
