Staff to get new accommodation at £37,000 a year Radley College
Barton Willmore has submitted plans for new staff accommodation at top public school Radley College whose previous pupils include former England cricket captain Andrew Strauss and comedian Peter Cook.
Vale of White Horse council is expected to make a decision this autumn on the scheme in Oxfordshire which will see 13 new residential buildings go up.
It will also include work to a grade II listed barn at the college – whose other former pupils include John Lewis chairman Charlie Mayfield and actor Richard Gibson best known for playing Herr Flick in 1980s comedy show ‘Allo ‘Allo! – to create a further eight homes.
The two-storey homes will be a mixture of two, three and four bed homes and are designed to be a benchmark for a further 240 homes planned for nearby land owned by Radley.
The college, where fees are approaching £37,000 a year, is one of only four boys-only, boarding-only private schools in the country – with the others being Winchester, Harrow and Eton.
