A Pupils View of UK Boarding Schools – Roedean
It’s such an amazing opportunity to be a leader and role-model to all the girls at school, but especially to other international and Nigerian students. I’ve been at this school for three years and have recently been appointed Deputy Head of School.
It’s true that there’s a culture shock when you first arrive, but you get used to it really quickly and soon it feels like your home. I have amazing relationships with all my friends from Years 7 to13, from so many different countries and this is something I really cherish.
I love being a Blue Angel (that means I’m in House 3) – we all have so much team spirit and every single house makes you feel very much a part of it from the moment you arrive. The Sunday Times called our accommodation the best in the world, and that’s true! My teachers are so generous with their time, and the boarding staff are just the loveliest too – they’re always there to make sure you’re okay with school stuff, or if you’re feeling homesick, or you just fancy a chat.
This school is great – I love it, and its set me up for the rest of my life!
