Junior School Overview
The Roedean Junior School offers a wide range of academic, cultural, and sporting opportunities and is designed to meet the developmental needs of all our girls. While we do follow the national curriculum, we strive to add value to it and aim to equip our girls with the special skills that will be required in the 21st Century.
At Roedean, teachers strive to bring the world into an integrated classroom and to ensure that subject content is exciting, interactive, and relevant. Presentations by guest speakers are encouraged and include talks by leading academics, artists, authors, entrepreneurs, and successful sports and business men and women. Educational day trips and class camps are the highlight of every girl’s year.
Our Cognitive Education strategic initiative (from Grade 0 to Grade 12) focuses on developing critical and creative thinking skills.
By bringing the world into our teaching and into our classrooms, the Roedean values-based educational approach encourages resilient, self-directed thinkers, who will be able to work collaboratively in living a life of significance.
