Roedean School (SA)

Matric Results 2022

Letter from the Senior School Head

Congratulations Matrics of 2022.

“Dear Matrics of 2022 Roedean School (SA) is proud to announce our best matric results ever. The 2022 results are awe-inspiring. They are the outcome of an incredibly committed team of teachers who have worked tirelessly to support a dedicated and hard-working group of students. The guidance and encouragement of the parents cannot be underestimated in setting up a cohort for this incredible outcome. I sincerely thank the teaching team for their unwavering commitment to excellence, even when challenges presented themselves.

These results do not come from a single year of dedication, but rather they are the culmination of 12 years of exemplary education. We are truly blessed at Roedean. I could not be more delighted in having the privilege of announcing these results and congratulating the 2022 cohort, their families and the teaching team on this monumental success. I have no doubt that armed with this strong foundation, our students will go into the world reflecting the values of truth, honour, freedom and courtesy as they leave our gates inspired to live a life of significance. With great pride in Roedean.”

Senior School Headmistress
