Inspiring a Life of Significance

We are proud of the many facets of our school that set us apart. Our core values, heritage and academic excellence are entrenched in our ethos, creating an exceptional and nurturing environment for learning and the development of our students.

A complete educational
journey

Junior School

The Roedean School journey begins in Grade 0 in the nurturing environment of St Margaret’s, home to the Foundation Phase (Grade 0 to Form 1 [Grade 3]). With a strong pastoral care system in place in this phase, our pupils enjoy a holistic education within a safe, happy and stimulating learning environment.

The girls then move to the Upper Junior School, which encompasses Form II to Upper IV (Grades 4-7). Here the emphasis is on developing each girl’s unique strengths and instilling in them a love of learning. Our pupils are given an outstanding education in a compassionate and caring environment that encourages curiosity, tenacity, problem solving, and commitment to social justice.

Senior School

The five-year Senior School journey commences in Lower V (Grade 8) and culminates in Matric (Grade 12) where the girls write their Matric Certificate through the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) to complete their educational journey. Our results are always superb, opening doors to both national and international tertiary opportunities.

Our dynamic and rich school curriculum enables our girls to thrive in a happy, caring and stimulating environment. A superb academic programme offers pupils a wide variety of subjects with a special focus on the acquisition of 21st Century skills, while the extensive variety of co-curricular activities on offer helps develop leadership and other critical skills.
