When the founders, the Lawrence sisters, first came up with the plan to establish Roedean, they lived in crowded, polluted, south London. Previously they had travelled all over Europe so were open to relocating when the influential Aunt Martineau recommended Brighton, “where the air is healthy and all schools succeed."
Roedean is located just on the eastern edge of Brighton, overlooking the marina. It is easily reached by train (15 minutes from the station) or by car.
Brighton is as exciting now as in those Regency days, and our girls have every opportunity to sample the city. They are trusted with increasing freedom as they progress through the school, starting with short visits to the Marina and working up to an evening out in town. This trust is rewarded by frequent compliments from Brightonians from all walks of life about the courtesy and good behaviour of our girls.
There is much more to Brighton than the pier, so find out what else is going on in Brighton.
