At Roedean, we are dedicated to widening access for local families. Each year we offer financial support to parents of gifted pupils whose circumstances would otherwise put Roedean beyond their reach.



The Awards Committee has a specified sum available to award to pupils at their discretion each year. Meeting the baseline criteria for financial assistance is not the only prerequisite for receiving a bursary award.


Applicants will be assessed on their academic performance, as demonstrated in the entrance assessment papers and their school report, in order to best direct funding decisions. 


Applicants should be aware that, even if a bursary is awarded, they will be required to pay the £150 registration fee (non-refundable).

  • Once awarded, the continuation of a bursary depends upon the pupil’s sustained academic achievement. 
  • Bursary awards are subject to annual assessment and must be reapplied for every year.
