Radley College

Radley College is a stunning backdrop to the summer school, with acres of mown green fields and woodland to walk in. The facilities are superb: many practice rooms, the Silk Hall for our concerts and masterclasses, a bright and airy meeting area for our tea breaks, and an awe-inspiring dining hall which may make you feel like you are at Hogwarts!


We all eat together in the dining hall, which has a self-service buffet. Full board includes three meals a day, including cooked breakfast. The meals are excellent, and there is plenty of choice with delicious hot dinners and English puddings with custard. There is always a salad option, and we can of course cater for vegans and vegetarians, and any other special requirements.

Oxford and Abingdon

Only 6 miles from the city of Oxford, Radley is an ideal base to visit this famous city – there are regular buses from right outside the College. Although our course is packed with musical activities, you may feel like stealing a few hours off to visit Oxford, or Abingdon, the local historic market town only a short bus ride away.


Accommodation and facilities

You can take a break in the coffee shop and relax with friends in the common room after the evening concerts. Each accommodation block has a kitchen to make hot drinks and chat to friends. There is a sports centre with swimming pool on site which you can join for one week at a cost of £15 – payable at the sports centre desk.
