A Roedean education is a unique and wonderful experience. Overlooking the English Channel, the girls have the space to grow up at their own pace and realise their full potential, and they thrive in this environment, happy and confident in their abilities.
As an academic school, Roedean seeks to inspire curiosity and a love of learning. The girls are highly successful in public examinations: in 2019, 32.3% of all GCSEs were awarded the highest Grade 9, and over half were at Grades 9-8; at A Level, 22.4% of all examinations were awarded an A* grade, and 55.9% achieved A*-A grades. Many girls go to the top universities in the country, as well as abroad, such as in America and Australia, and last year 31% of leavers went on to university to study Mathematics and Science subjects.
Our holistic vision of education also places a very high value on all the experiences that happen beyond the classroom, in Sport, Art, Drama, Music, and Dance, all of which make up an essential part of life at Roedean. The School’s four Roedean Ambassadors are exceptional role-models and they are all highly successful women: Kate and Helen Richardson-Walsh, our Sports Ambassadors, won Olympic Gold at Rio2016; Anabela Chan, our Creative Arts Ambassador, is a famous jewellery designer; and Dr Suzie Imber, our STEM Ambassador, is a Professor of Space Physics. The girls are encouraged to follow their passion and have high aspirations.
Roedean is committed to maintaining outstanding facilities, with excellent boarding houses, a flood-lit all-weather pitch at the heart of the School, a Farm with sheep, chicken, and goats, and a 320-seater Theatre, and a transformation of the Library is planned for 2020. The opportunity for girls to be able to excel in a number of different fields is one of the great gifts of Roedean, since it provides them with the space and time to devote to their passions, and all in one place. It is precisely this rounded education which produces independent and creative young women who will make their mark in the world.
Roedean combines the tradition and heritage of a school for girls founded in 1885 with dynamic teaching and impressive accommodation and facilities. The mix of local, London, and international girls creates a special and dynamic atmosphere. The school is easily accessible from London and the South, and Gatwick airport is 30 minutes away. With its stunning position by the sea in Brighton, Roedean is one of the UK’s leading girls’ schools.
