On Saturday 22 June, a perfect summer’s day, we were delighted to welcome back 204 ORs, former staff and their guests to Roedean Day, one of the most important days in our calendar.

We were especially pleased that so many ORs attended from the Class of 1979 to mark their ’40 years on’, and the Class of 1989 to mark their ’30 years on’. Heartfelt thanks and congratulations to Sarah Thompson (Button, No.4, 1969 - 79) who did an amazing job ensuring so many attended from the class of 1979, and Camilla Nightingale (Johnston-Lyon, No.1, 1982 - 89) and Karoline Molberg (No.4, 1982 - 89) with the Class of 1989.

As well as tours of the School, there was plenty for our visitors to see, including the Archives in the Blyth, an Art Exhibition in the Art Studios and Old Ref. From 12 noon drinks were served in the Cloisters, which was followed by a delicious lunch in the Dining Room.

After lunch, a large group of ORs braved the 'Tunnel Tour', while others enjoyed strolling through the grounds to the playing fields, where they enjoyed watching (and participating in!) the School’s Sports day. Congratulations to all ORs who took part in the Golden Mile relay race, particularly the team from the Class of 1979! The day was rounded off by afternoon tea enjoyed in the grounds of the School.  

We would love to see your personal photos from Roedean Day, please email them to Harriet at, and let us know if you are happy for us to use them in our publications. And look out for the double page ‘Roedean Day 2019’ spread in the summer edition of The Roedeanian magazine.
