Meet The Head


A genuinely holistic education 

It is a privilege and an honour to be the Head of this very special School. You will see, like I did, that it is an exciting community to be part of with dedicated staff, enthusiastic girls, supportive parents’ association, and a global Old Girls network.


I have now worked for over 20 years in leading girls’ boarding schools in a variety of academic and pastoral roles starting off as a French and German teacher, Head of Department, Housemistress, Deputy Head and more recently as Acting Head.

For me, an all girls’ education is synonymous with an education to become a strong, independent, resilient young woman ready to face the world – whilst providing a safe space for girls as they experience the most important years in their development.

“My vision for the girls at Roedean is to continue the vision of the founding Lawrence sisters when they moved Roedean to this exceptional site 125 years’ ago: a truly holistic education.”

The Lawrence sisters wanted the same for girls as boys received, and to this day Roedean’s academic results rival other top schools in the country.  Tailoring our education to ensure that your daughter achieves her full potential is crucial and paramount to me as a leader. I want to ensure that your daughter is inspired by her teachers, finds her passion and is also challenged.


Over the last few years the use of technology in schools and in the world has changed. We know that your daughter will be applying for jobs that do not even exist at the moment.


At Roedean we will make sure that she is ready.

“I am a firm believer in accepting girls from a wide range of abilities and with a variety of passions, accepting girls that will make the most of what is on offer here at Roedean and really ‘get stuck in’.”

At Roedean, the success of an academic approach that encourages children to pursue their own interests as well as intellectual challenge is shown in Roedean’s exam results; but this is only one part of your daughter’s education.

Where Roedean School stands out, is the breadth of co-curricular and enrichment programmes embedded throughout the school, from Wild Fridays, volunteering at St Mark’s Primary, raising money for charity and volunteering in the local community and further afield.

For me, the co-curricular programme is as important as academics, and a balanced approach is key. This is because, so often, talents and passions sparked outside the classroom in school can last a lifetime, whilst academic results will enable the girls to reach their goals, no matter if that journey is towards Oxbridge to study medicine, going to Arts college or doing an Apprenticeship.

At Roedean, I and the staff will work alongside you and your daughter to ensure that your daughter’s time at Roedean is meaningful, so that she will start the next phase of her journey as a confident, ambitious and compassionate young woman, ready to make her mark on the world.
