Roedean provides a distinctively academic, high-quality, all-round education within a caring and friendly community in a wonderful coastal setting.

Aims of the School

A Family-feel School with Freedom to Grow

Roedean Moira House has been rooted in the local community and landscape of Eastbourne since 1888 (established 1875), providing the foundation and richness of opportunity for girls to develop their confidence.

Girls with all interests and abilities from our local and international diverse community thrive as a result of an all-round education model in which we believe that with effort and motivation anything is possible.

As part of our RMH nursery to year 13 family, girls experience small class sizes, a nurturing approach and teaching that gives detailed and tailored support. The experience of girls being surrounded by female role models results in learning without compromise, and allows girls to be themselves and whilst becoming who they want to be.

Roedean’s educational model is to offer a genuinely holistic and academic education which enables pupils to enjoy their education, develop their own interests, and discover their academic passions. We are delighted that girls in Eastbourne and beyond will have access to a Roedean education, which is characterised by a commitment to academic excellence, high-quality pastoral support, and an exceptional range of opportunities beyond the curriculum, all within a family-feel school where girls have the freedom to grow.

With affordability being one of the key issues for parents and the cost of independent day education in Eastbourne often being prohibitive, Roedean Moira House is proud to make independent education more accessible, while maintaining the highest quality and standards.

We are delighted that from September 2018, significant investment has been put into the School, with two new Science laboratories, an exciting new Junior Playground, wonderful grass tennis courts and refurbished boarding at Boston House, a beautiful building from 1900 with many original features, to an extremely high standard. Roedean Moira House is a home from home - students flourish and explore their talents without limits, in a happy and relaxed atmosphere.

We look forward to welcoming you to our School.

What they say…

From the tiny four 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.

What They Say…

For an independent school, it is remarkably free of the anxiety and stress of achievement and constant measure that plague many.  A parent described it as a happy relaxed school, where 'if your daughter has something, they will find and nurture it.'
