It is with great sadness and regret that we announce that Roedean Moira House School will be closing at the end of the current academic year.
Since joining the Roedean Group of Schools in 2017 everyone has been committed to developing the provision and providing an outstanding education for the girls. While we have seen great improvements in the facilities, additional co-curricular opportunity and excellent academic results, it remains difficult to sustain the School with declining numbers.
The School has exhausted all available avenues to try to find an alternative to closing, but current revenue levels mean that we face financial losses that we cannot sustain. We have received several bids from investors which we have pursued as far as possible, but these have not led to a solution that we are able to accept.
Our partnership with Roedean has enabled us to secure the funding to meet all running and closure costs to allow Roedean Moira House to operate until the end of the Summer Term, thereby creating an ordered, solvent wind down.
“It is with great sadness and regret, that we have taken the difficult decision to close Roedean Moira House”, says Andrew Pianca, Chair of Governors at Roedean Moira House, “Our legal advisors tell us it is the only route available to us. We will do our very best to care for the pupils, staff and parents of our community in the coming days and weeks. The Headmaster and his team of senior staff will meet individually with parents to discuss how to ensure their daughters make the best possible transition to the right future School.”
