September 2016 Entry

Each year at Roedean our scholarship and bursary awards recognise and support many very talented and gifted girls.

Sussex and London City Scholarships (Years 7, 9 & Sixth Form)

These Scholarships are worth up to 40% of fees.  

We see our new Sussex and London City Scholars as academically able girls who will bring something extra to the school. They may be fantastic all-rounders who will thrive on the many opportunities open to them at Roedean or an able girl with a particular passion for music, history, art, sport or something else entirely.

As scholars, they will have strong academic potential, but as important as this is their love for learning, innate curiosity and an ability to enrich their community.

Years 7, 9 and Sixth Form Scholarships (UK)

Girls who show particular aptitude in their academic work or have exceptional skills in other areas are invited to apply for scholarships into Years 7, 9 and Sixth Form.  The normal value is 10% with the exception of the Academic All-Rounder (which carries a monetary value of up to 20% of the fees for Year 7 and 9 only).  Means tested bursaries may also be awarded in addition to scholarships.  Year 7 & 9 applicants may only apply for one award, Sixth Form may apply for up to two awards (only one will be awarded).

In addition Sixth Form candidates also take a general paper.

International Scholarships

Roedean is delighted to launch a prestigious new award for overseas students. Our new academic scholarships for academic excellence, or musical ability, will provide a scholarship or musical programme to help extend and challenge girls to fulfil their potential.

These scholarships are available to overseas students with outstanding ability and potential, who are academically able, and who may also be talented musicians. These are honorary scholarships which carry a small award for scholarship-related activities . All scholars at Roedean are fully involved in our Scholars programme.

Brighthelm Awards (Year 7 & Sixth Form)

Girls applying for a Brighthelm Award must be nominated by their Primary School Headteacher.  Candidates should be performing in the top 2% of Year 6 academic levels in English and Maths.  We cannot accept independent applications. 

These awards are means tested scholarships for girls from local state schools and are typically worth between 50% and 100% of day fees.  They are designed to enable exceptionally talented girls who live within a 20 mile radius, to attend the school.  These girls will thrive academically and will make a significant contribution to the school.  Our Brighthelm scholars will be local girls who aspire to win places at the world's leading universities and contribute to school life beyond the classroom.  Sixth Form candidates should have an academic profile of an A/A* predicted at GCSE. 


Once awarded, the continuation of a scholarship depends upon the pupil’s sustained achievement in her subject area.
