Roedean - the Top Girls' School in Sussex

A Roedean education is unique, combining academic excellence with space for the girls to grow up at their own pace and realise their full potential.

Roedean inspires curiosity and a love of learning without losing the enjoyment and delight of an all-round education. Following an outstanding ISI report in May 2016, which judged it to be excellent in every area, Roedean celebrated both its best ever A Level (62% A*-A) and GCSE (50% A*) results over the last two years. The DfE's new A Level league tables, published in the Telegraph in January, rank Roedean as the highest performing girls' school in Sussex. Away from London's academic pressure-cooker, 51.9% of Roedean girls last year achieved A Level grades of AAB or higher in at least two facilitating subjects, which is what is required by the UK's Russell Group universities.

Girls are given the freedom to develop their talents and passions, and the school's holistic vision of education means that activities such as sport, art, drama, music, and dance complement academic achievement and make up an essential part of life at the school. It is precisely this rounded education which produces independent and creative young women who will make their mark in the world.

Roedean's exceptional facilities include our farm with chickens and sheep, a flood-lit all-weather pitch in the near future, and the recent impressive £1/2 million refurbishment of the Sixth Form facilities. Having grown by 70 students this academic year, Roedean now numbers 570 girls, and is expected to grow further next year. Weekly and flexi-boarders from London benefit from the weekend chaperoned service to and from London Victoria.

Roedean is one of the UK's leading girls' schools - the girls play sport with the sea's blue behind them and the green of the South Downs in front of them, the maths and humanities classrooms have perhaps the best view of any school in the country, and which other boarding houses have been likened to a boutique hotel? Roedean is simply unique.
