Roedean is one of the UK’s most successful and famous independent schools. Enjoying an iconic location overlooking the English Channel, it sits within a national park and close to the thriving and cosmopolitan city of Brighton & Hove. Roedean has been providing a high quality and often ground-breaking education for girls for over 130 years.
In 2017, the Council of Roedean School formed the Roedean Group of Schools to explore ways to develop Roedean’s educational model beyond the limits of Roedean School in order to expand the reach of the model and to enable more pupils to benefit from Roedean’s educational vision and leadership.
Roedean’s educational model is to offer a genuinely holistic academic education which enables pupils to enjoy their education, develop their own interests and discover their academic passions. A Roedean education is characterised by a commitment to academic excellence, high quality pastoral support and an exceptional range of opportunities beyond the curriculum, all within a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
In order to enable other schools and educational establishments to flourish and to support their pupils’ development, the Roedean Group provides a flexible partnership model which provides strategic leadership and expertise, staff training and mentoring, and investment to schools that share a commitment to Roedean’s educational vision.
Schools within the Roedean Group of Schools enjoy the benefits of being part of a larger and supportive family, while maintaining their own unique heritage, staffing and leadership structures. The Roedean Group of Schools seeks to enable its partner schools to develop, strengthen and diversify in accordance with a school development plan that meets the aims and objectives of the Group’s overarching development plan.
