The IDEALS in our school

Roedean’s Round Square Committee fosters the IDEALS on the Students’ Representative Council, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, and Social Responsibility programmes. Barazas allow the girls to engage meaningfully with thought-provoking issues raised by influential speakers. On our annual Round Square Day, each grade explores an IDEAL through experiential learning. Girls benefit from international and local exchange programmes, and by interacting with visiting exchange students. We value the fellowship of the Round Square Family by attending Conferences which enrich the school.

What being a Round Square school means to us

Roedean School’s philosophy, “Inspiring a life of significance” is enhanced by our embracing the IDEALS of Round Square. In addition to our rigorous academic curriculum, we are aware that our girls need resilience, compassion, a sense of adventure and a profound understanding of local and global issues if they are to succeed in a complex and demanding world. Round Square provides our girls with meaningful opportunities in which to participate and to reflect on their personal growth.
