Founders' Mission

Roedean School was founded in 1885, to provide ‘a thorough physical, intellectual and moral’ education with ‘as much liberty as is consistent with safety’. It sought from the outset to prepare students for a university education and their future careers. The School’s first prospectus outlined six key pillars of Roedean School:

  • —To encourage healthy and active living
  • —To provide a strong academic foundation
  • —To develop an appreciation of sport, culture and the arts
  • —To build independence of thought and character
  • —To develop skills and confidence for university and careers
  • —To develop a strong sense of personal and moral values

This founding vision continues in the School to this day. Roedean provides a distinctively academic, high-quality, all-round education within a caring and friendly community in a wonderful coastal setting.

Our aim is to inspire and challenge every student to develop her strengths and passions, to seek the highest academic and personal standards for herself and develop a strong foundation for her future.

At Roedean, we seek to enable pupils to develop lifelong friendships, a strong sense of belonging and a sense of pride in themselves and their school to remain with them long after they have left.
