Extracts from the Radford College Strategic Plan: A Vision for Our Future 2021-2025

“This Plan belongs to the Radford community. It speaks to who we are, what we want to do, and where we see ourselves in the next five years. As you read it, we hope you are as excited about the future as we are.”
Principal Fiona Godfrey OAM and Chairman (2018–2021) Steve Baker

Our Purpose

Radford College is a generous-spirited learning community that embodies the beliefs and values of the Christian faith in the Anglican tradition.

We develop young people to live truthfully, practise compassion and seek wisdom in order to serve the common good.

Our Vocation

It is our vocation to graduate students who find themselves through friendship and service with others,

who love the world enough to act beyond self-interest, young people who are:

awake to God’s presence and purposes;

confident in learning, skilled in clear thinking and intellectual rigour;

humble in their gifts, generous in spirit and compassionate in action;

courageous for justice, seekers of the common good;

respectful and trustworthy – always and everywhere;

creative and bold to imagine new possibilities, at peace with themselves;

authors of lives that transcend the material, rich in meaning and filled with hope.
