About us – our mission & aims
Founded by Charles Ingham in Surrey in 1875 as Moira House School, and moving to our beautiful campus in Eastbourne in 1887, Roedean Moira House is a historic Day and Boarding School for girls from Nursery-age through to Sixth Form, nestled between the South Downs and the Eastbourne coastline.
Charles Ingham was a pioneer of female education in Victorian England, echoing the founding Lawrence sisters of Roedean, who believed that girls deserved an education which was at least as good as boys had.
The Roedean Group of Schools seeks to continue this vision by providing a distinctively academic, high-quality and holistic education, within a caring and friendly community.
Our facilities include an indoor pool, Sports Centre, Netball and Tennis Courts, Lacrosse Pitch, Boarding rooms refurbished this year, brand-new Science labs, and an exciting and creatively designed Junior Playground due to be completed in Autumn 2018.
Aims of the School
Roedean Moira House is fortunate to be the most recent joining member of the Roedean Group of Schools. We seek to deliver Roedean’s distinctive holistic and academic educational model, which is in harmony with Charles Ingham’s founding principles of Moira House School. At Roedean Moira House, we aim to inspire and challenge every student to develop her strengths and passions, to seek the highest academic and personal standards for herself, and to develop a strong foundation for her future.
At Roedean Moira House, we seek to enable you to develop life-long friendships, a strong sense of belonging, and a sense of pride in yourself and your school.
