Message from Junior School Headmistress

Welcome to our website for Roedean Junior School – an integral part of Roedean School (SA), which shares the same aims and values, yet has the distinctive and special qualities of a Junior School.

At Roedean, we recognise our girls as individuals, each with her unique abilities, interests, and aspirations. We strive towards “Inspiring a Life of Significance,” founded on our values of Truth, Honour, Freedom and Courtesy, and are committed to educating a generation of young people to become ethical, global citizens and equal thinkers who can navigate diversity in a mindful, conscious, and considerate way as they develop into our leaders of the future.

Roedean is wholly committed to giving your daughters an outstanding education, allowing them opportunities to flourish and develop into independent, open-minded, and open-hearted young women.

A school must be an environment where children thrive and are inspired to reach their potential. It is our view that strong relationships in the school environment are a key ingredient to success. We appreciate the need to ensure that the pastoral well-being of the girls in our care is excellent, and that the environment fills both pupils and parents with confidence.

A good school is a competitive, yet compassionate, community. Educating the head, without educating the heart, is no education at all – Aristotle

I hope you enjoy finding out about our wonderful school and the opportunities offered to the girls. A website can only give you a snapshot of what a school is really like. We invite you to come and visit us, and we look forward to your experiencing this excellent school in action.
