Welcome to Radnor House’s website and thank you for taking the time to find out more about us. If you are thinking about our school as a place where your child might thrive and be successful in the years ahead, the good news is that they will!
Radnor House is a friendly and effective school that provides an exceptional educational experience. With around 445 pupils, we are small enough to know every child well and big enough to offer an environment where every child can fulfil their potential through a host of opportunities to make the most of their talents.
Our strapline is ‘Great Teaching, Genuine Values’, which sums us up nicely. Founded in 2011 on the belief that education must nurture, encourage and celebrate children, at Radnor House today you will find a dynamic mix of high academic standards, exceptional pastoral care and expansive opportunities for pupils within a successful environment and beautiful setting on the bank of the River Thames.
Our boys and girls are happy, accomplished and well-focused, and Radnor House has become one of the most dynamic and exciting schools in the area, a situation that will only be enhanced when our Senior School moves to a new site at Kneller Hall, near to Twickenham Stadium, which is currently scheduled for September 2023.
Our four core values are not just words: they underpin everything we do.
Courage – we expect everyone to try their best, to have a go and to be brave in their approach to all the challenges of school and the wider world.
Excellence – we ask everyone to be the most excellent version of themselves, able to look themselves in the eye in the mirror every day and to know they could not have done any more.
Perseverance – we need to be able to persevere in order to achieve things, to maintain a growth mindset and not give up when the going gets tough.
Respect – we must treat each other with respect and kindness at all times, regardless of who we are or wherever our talents or weakness lie.
My favourite description of Radnor House is that we provide a refreshingly enlightened alternative option, with our focus on encouragement rather than pressure, and with our values underpinning everything we do. I look forward to meeting you and to having the chance to tell you more about what we can do to help your child thrive here.
I am delighted to share with you our new school film. This short film is a simple guide to our approach to education, the values that underpin everything that we do, and why it matters to us.
