Boarding For All Ages
Our highly-skilled housemistress and boarding staff recognise that our girls thrive in age-appropriate boarding settings.
Our junior boarders (Year 7, 8 & 9) enjoy shared bedrooms in separate wings of each house. As this can be the girls’ first experience of boarding, we deliver a bespoke experience which includes a warm and welcoming home away from home, supervised prep, a vast programme of weeknight and weekend activities, and pastoral workshops.
As our boarders’ progress through school, we appreciate them becoming increasingly independent and mature in both their academic studies and how they live together. Our Sixth Formers live together in separate houses, a short distance from the main school building. This gives them the opportunity to thrive, ahead of university and life beyond Roedean, and continue to build mutually respectful relationships with staff. Each girl has a single bedroom, with silent and collaborative study spaces available.
“The multi-cultural nature of the boarding community is a distinctive feature of the school and boarders of all ages speak of their joy of being part of a society that is rooted in so many nationalities.”
