The Jewish Chronicle

A very different story


I was saddened to read Leonora Samuel’s letter( The Senior Jewess, 19 February).

I too was at Roedean School, from 1958-63.

My parents gave the school a pair of silver candlestic­ks so that candles could be, and were lit every Friday night.

The headmistre­ss, Mrs Jean Fort, was delighted to accept them and happily offered her study for this purpose .

My conclusion was that antisemiti­sm was not part of the ethos of Roedean and was not present in any way during my time at the school.
