Roedean People


Space To Be…



At Roedean, I have had so many opportunities, both academic and co-curricular. The one that stands out the most was when I was part of the cross-channel relay earlier this year, which was a huge achievement for me, being the youngest on the team.

“The record of achievement in a range of sports is outstanding, and pupils say they enjoy the opportunity for participation in myriad school fixtures, whatever their level of competence.”
