Roedean was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) in May 2007.
The ISI evaluates the quality of the teaching and learning and the whole educational experience of the child.
We were delighted that the school was described as:
“Giving its pupils a highly effective educational experience at each phase of their school life.
The foundations for this are the major strength of its supportive and encouraging pastoral care and attention to the pupils’ welfare, its international and well-integrated pupil community and its strong academic ethos.”
“Teachers have very high levels of knowledge and understanding of their subjects from which pupils derive confidence. They convey authority and enthusiasm and a wealth of knowledge well beyond their own subject.
Pupils observed in inspection week were confident, articulate, hard-working and happy. They demonstrate the ability to think and act critically and creatively, seizing the many opportunities to progress.
Pupils are unfailingly courteous and respectful, and relationships between staff and pupils are excellent.”
“The school community is at ease with itself and its different cultures. Pupils’ cultural awareness is outstanding; “Remember, we have all grown up together” was a typical comment.
Parents in an interview said they saw their daughters as 'children of the world' and were delighted by this aspect of their education.”
