About Roedean School
Roedean is one of the UK’s leading girls’ boarding and day schools. It was founded in 1885 by the three Lawrence sisters. The School opened in Brighton with just 10 pupils but within a decade it had grown to 400. The early pupils were daughters of the professional middle classes and industrialists.
Roedean’s foundation was motivated by a commitment to provide girls with access to the full range of academic studies. A high level of academic achievement was expected, motivated by the then groundbreaking view that young women should be given the means to earn a living and, if necessary, support their families.
The founders acquired a 45-acre campus overlooking the English Channel on the eastern edge of Brighton and moved the School in 1898. This is where the School sits today.
