Radley’s forces fund reaches £500,000


The fund is aimed to support children of service men and women


Radley College’s Armed Forces Fund, set up to provide an education for the sons and daughters of service men and women killed or seriously wounded, while serving their country, has now reached £500,000 in less than six months.


The Foundation is most grateful to those who have contributed and is very moved by the generosity of donors for this worthwhile cause. Many members of the Radley community have been touched by the deaths of Lieutenant Colonel Rupert Thorneloe and Lieutenant Dougie Dalzell at war in Afghanistan and the fi rst two bursaries awarded will be in their names.


Downe House School and St Mary’s Calne are also involved in the campaign: sons will


go to Radley and daughters to one of these two well-known girls’ schools.

Quadriplegic student gains place at university after 12-hour examination


A student with cerebral palsy sat a 12-hour exam in order to pursue his dream of going to university – despite not being able to walk, write or speak. Isaac Malter, who studied at Alton College in Hampshire, took the International Baccalaureate exams and answered the questions by pointing out letters on an alphabet board. Mr Malter discovered he had passed his exams in July, which included written, practical and oral assessments in maths, literature, biology, chemistry, french and geography. The 18 year-old sat the 12-hour exam over two days. This autumn he is attending Nottingham University to study a four-year masters in environmental science.
