Sarah Roper was born in New Zealand but was already living in England by the age of three. She grew up in Gloucestershire before attending Chetham´s School of Music in Manchester and then went on to the Royal Academy of Music, London, where she studied the oboe with George Caird and Celia Nicklin, whilst reading music at London University simultaneously. At the RAM she was awarded the Robert Rendell prize.
