Roedean School has announced that Moira House School and Deepdene School have joined the Roedean Group of Schools, starting from this September.
The Roedean Group provides a flexible partnership model which provides strategic leadership and expertise, staff training and mentoring, and investment to schools that share a commitment to Roedean’s educational vision.
Oliver Blond, Executive Head of the Roedean Group of Schools and Headmaster of Roedean, said: “We look forward to working with staff and pupils at Moira House and Deepdene, sharing in the increased opportunities for shared training and development. Together, the Roedean Group of Schools will provide an academically strong provision across a wider geographical area for the benefit of a greater number of pupils in the region.”
By joining the Roedean Group, Moira House will be committed to continuing to deliver an excellent education, which it has been providing for over 142 years, whilst seeking to develop the provision and ensure a strong long-term future for the School on its campus in Eastbourne.
Joining the Roedean Group of Schools will help Moira House move to a position of even greater strength and will provide the School with the necessary support to achieve its strategic goals. Investment in staff, infrastructure and resources will support the growth of Moira House to deliver a secure financial future on the campus in Eastbourne.
Jill Hill, Chair of Governors at Moira House, commented: “This move ensures that Moira House will thrive long-term, and maintain its position as a local and international school that continues to create a stimulating environment in which pupils want to learn through excellent teaching, where they take responsibility for their own learning, both in the classroom and outside of it, and achieve the very best results of which they are capable, in the spirit of the School’s founding principles.”
Deepdene School has been working with Roedean School for the last year and will continue to be an independent school, developing and delivering its own aims, but, as a partner school, it will benefit from the leadership and investment opportunities of being part of the Group.
Elizabeth Brown, Head of Deepdene, added: “We are delighted to formalise our partnership and membership of the Roedean Group, and look forward to continuing to work with Roedean for the mutual benefit of our staff and pupils alike.”
