Each year at Roedean our scholarship and bursary awards recognise and support many very talented and gifted girls.
This year, we are increasing the support that we are offering to girls from Sussex and London who will thrive academically and make a significant contribution to the life of the school.
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.
Girls who show particular aptitude in their academic work or have exceptional skills in other areas are invited to apply for scholarships into both Year 7 and Year 9. The normal value is 10% with the exception of the Academic All-Rounder which carries a monetary value of 20% of the fees. 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 be awarded).
In addition Sixth Form candidates also take a general paper.
Girls applying for a Year 7 Brighthelm Award can only be introduced by their Primary School Headteacher. Candidates must be performing in the top 2% of Year 6 academic levels. We cannot accept independent applications.
These awards are means tested scholarships for girls from local state schools and are typically worth over 50%, and up to 100% of day fees. They are designed to enable exceptionally talented girls, who live within a 20 mile radius of the school, who will thrive academically and 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.
