The £170,000 lease agreement provides Radley with a Groundsmaster 3400-D, a high performance 4WD out-front rotary mower; two Reelmaster 3100-Ds, providing a precision cut for a wide range of applications; a Reelmaster 6700-D, with mowing flexibility and a durable drive system; and a Groundsmaster 4300-D, which boasts an average 5.4 acres an hour of mowing.
The school has a range of turf-based sports on offer including rugby, field hockey, cricket and a nine-hole golf course.
Grounds manager Adam King explained that leasing made better financial sense than buying new machines.
"Our existing Toro machines were in need of an upgrade and the lease agreement allowed us to have new machines straight away, while also covering winter service, and all at a fixed cost.
"This lets us manage our budget and, as well as replace some models like for like, we've been able to upgrade to better models on others," he added.
