Roedean Moira House girls’ families might live many time zones away, or they might have grown up just around the corner. Many girls come to school each day (69% of students are day girls), and they join others who board here, either as full boarders, weekly or flexi-boarders.
Many day girls stay in school until about 5.30pm, so that they can take a full and active part in all of the wonderful co-curricular activities on offer, such as music rehearsals, clubs, or sports training sessions. School buses collect girls in the mornings and return them home again at the end of the day, leaving school at 5:20pm. Some routes operate in and around Eastbourne, and others go much farther afield.
I chose the school as a place that would give me better opportunities than my previous school, both academically and socially. The teachers are always so passionate about the subjects they are teaching, which gives me even more motivation to learn as much as I possibly can. The activities programme also gives me access to subjects that I'm not taking as GCSEs, giving me broader knowledge as a whole.
