Old Roedeanians' Association

The School is very fortunate to have a long-established Old Girls Association, the Old Roedeanians’ Association (ORA), which is run solely by Old Roedeanians as volunteers and which has been keeping ORs in touch for generations. The Association is open to girls who have attended Roedean for at least two years and to nominated former staff.

The Aims of the Old Roedeanians' Association (the ORA) are:

  • To keep alive the spirit imbued by the Founders of the School.
  • To uphold the reputation of the School.
  • To provide support and assistance to the School.
  • To provide a link between ORs and the School, and with each other.
  • To support the OR Scholarship Fund.
  • To hold reunions and social events to foster and encourage friendship and support.

The ORA is a member of AROPS (the Association for Alumni Societies)
