What says..

From the tiny 4 year old girl bubbling over about her day to the unassuming sixth formers, the girls we met here seemed very natural, and answered questions with frank spontaneity. They seem comfortable in their own skins, and without city gloss. Indeed, this was a school...

What the school says...

Roedean Moira House prides itself on the quality of relationships throughout the school, on knowing each individual and developing her strengths and interests.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Principal

Since July 2018, Andrew Wood (BA, biology, Durham). Formerly deputy head at Newington college prep in Sydney, director of studies at Bede’s prep and faculty lead of science at Roedean. A resident of Eastbourne, Mr Wood previously cycled every day to Brighton; girls are fascinated that he’s super fit, said a parent, who described him as ‘engaging, willing to listen and takes points on board’.

When Moira House joined the Roedean Group of schools in September 2017, Elodie Vallantine - previously acting principal - took up the position of head of school. Oliver Blond is executive head of the Roedean Group, and parents say he has dealt with the changes well, and given them a lot of confidence.

Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

The SEND department works closely with academic departments and staff to enable every girl to reach her potential. We recognise that at points throughout their school career some girls may require additional input to allow them to progress and achieve and the department works closely with teachers, parents and pupils to provide this support. Our aim is to ensure that all girls can access a broad and balanced curriculum, that the whole pupil is nurtured and developed, and girls leave Roedean Moira House School confident and able to approach the next stage of their life.
