Drawing of Roedean South Africa

In 1903, Theresa Lawrence and Katherine Margaret Earle set sail for South Africa and founded Roedean's sister school Roedean South Africa.

The basic aims of the school, rules, coat of arms, song and ethos travelled to Johannesburg with Theresa; most importantly, right from the beginning, there was the same emphasis on academic excellence.  Like Roedean in Brighton, the school's international reputation attracts pupils from the African continent and beyond; the flags of 47 countries fluttered to celebrate the School's centenary in 2003. 

Today, Roedean South Africa has over 800 pupils.  Occasionally, their pupils come to study in Brighton; occasionally our staff have taught in Johannesburg.
