The independent school admissions process

Admissions is more than just a process. It's about finding the right girls to join a very special community.

We choose girls who will make the most of the opportunities offered to them and who will contribute fully to the life of the school.

The process itself, though, is as stress free as possible, and we are here to offer as much guidance and support to each family as necessary.

We advise applying between 12-18 months before entry.

Key dates

You will see that there are set dates for certain elements. However, we understand that work relocations and family circumstances aren’t always so neatly timetabled.

If this is the case, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Visiting the school

If you think Roedean might be right for your daughter, we look forward to meeting you.  Many families visit two or three times - by attending an Open Day, having a Taster Day or by making an individual visit.

Contact Diana Banham, Registrar, on 01273 667626 to arrange your visit.

In the meantime, for a different perspective, read why our staff love working at Roedean.
