Beyond the Classroom

Diverse, Inspiring & Exciting 

The breadth of our co-curricular activities continues to be one of Roedean’s great strengths – providing wide-ranging opportunities for the girls to develop and thrive, try as many new things as possible, and enjoy their all-round school experience.

With over 160 activities that cross year groups each week, every girl can discover something she is genuinely passionate about; whether physical, creative, thinking, or expressive, these activities underline the holistic nature of our educational provision.

I teach Russian at Roedean, and love languages, but I am also a keen musician, singer, and sports player.

I like attending Farm Club because it’s a nice break from the hustle and bustle of school; it’s fairly quiet and it just feels calming to be outside.
