Girls Senior School in Brighton, East Sussex

Roedean is the place to nurture talents and spark your curiosity. This is because we believe that education is about far more than just exam results. Roedean provides an all-round, distinctively academic education within a caring and friendly community, where girls achieve outstanding academic grades, but also pursue passions and challenge themselves to try new things.

Roedean offers day and boarding for girls aged 11 to 18 within an inspiring location on the South Coast of Brighton, UK, which includes a farm and breath-taking sea views. We are close enough to Brighton to take advantage of this dynamic city, but far enough away to enjoy the beauty of our unique cliff-top location, at the foot of the South Down National Park. Just 30 minutes from Gatwick and an hour from London, Roedean is accessible to all transport routes.

All girls develop a love for learning and are encouraged at all stages to pursue intellectual challenge. Outstanding examination results (56% A*-A grades at A level and 74% Grades 9-7 at GCSE in 2023) are evidence of the resilience, curiosity and confidence fostered by Roedean’s approach to academics. From those learning new games to elite athletes, Roedean offers fourteen different sports. The school delights in both Visual and Performing Arts and offers over 150 activities as part of the co-curricular programme. Roedean offers a truly inspirational setting where opportunities are endless, and where its holistic educational journey develops independent and creative young women.
