For 10 years, Tatler have been reviewing the top 200+ British prep and public schools in their annual Schools Guide.
A male Head at Roedean? Whatever next? We're told that the appointment of Oliver Blond (such a great name: a little bit Brideshead, a little bit 007) is the hot topic at Brighton dinner parties. And we can well believe it.
Roedean's girls love their school's cliff-top location, love their teachers ('they encourage you to believe in yourself') and love not having boys cluttering up the place.
The 10 year olds take the private tunnel down to the beach for a bit of rock-pooling; the elder ones catch a bus into town. The building is fab and the website features an excellent virtual tour to whet the appetites of prospective parents.
Academically it's fine, with 80% scoring A*-B at A level. The DT is brilliant and adventurous, sport is robust and pastoral care is superb these days. To top it all, a £10m refurbishment of the houses is under way; the end result will be, we hear, 'boutique chic'.
