Life at an independent girls’ boarding school

When the three Lawrence sisters founded Roedean, they saw it as an extension of their own lively, boisterous family home. With 11 siblings, they knew it was essential that the younger and older children worked together in order to get things done. Traditionally, Roedean has been a full boarding school for most of its history.

Full, weekly or flexi?

We now offer weekly and flexi boarding, in addition to full boarding.

This means our girls can get the most out of the educational and extracurricular opportunities at Roedean from Monday to Friday, but can return home to other friends and family at the weekends. They are very much part of the boarding community and will receive the same level of care, opportunity and accommodation as full boarders.
