We aim to make the admissions process as smooth and informative as possible. Contact Senior Registrar, Mrs Diana Banham (dba@roedean.co.uk) for details.

Overseas Admissions

Our Director of Admissions, Mrs Diana Banham (dba@roedean.co.uk or 01273 667626), will be your main point of contact throughout the admissions’ process. She is supported by Registrar, Ms Joanna Clarke, along with Mrs Hayley Chinnery, Miss Jessica Boles, Miss Jessica Barnes and Mrs Vicki Orbell, and the team will be happy to discuss any questions you may have along the way.

Pupils applying from outside the United Kingdom can do so via an educational agency or directly to the School. A full school report and UKiset report is required prior to registration, for consideration by our Admissions team.

Worldwide educational provision varies enormously from country to country, so at Roedean we ask all pupils applying to us from outside the EU whose first language is not English to take the UKiset online tests for screening purposes. These tests have been specifically designed for international pupils and measure ability over four areas: non-verbal, verbal, quantative and spatial reasoning. Tests can be organised in centres around the world and details are on the UKiset website: www.ukiset.com.

Roedean is always delighted to consider bright, high-achieving students who seek to enter top UK schools and world-class universities. Each year, strong overseas and international candidates join the school in the same way as those from the UK. A reasonable level of fluency in English and good understanding of it from the outset are expected, so that the girls can access the curriculum well and make good progress. We do however offer a great deal of extra language support to our international students where it is needed.

You are, of course, most welcome to visit the school, and this is the best way to find out what makes Roedean such a unique school. You can find out more about our three Open Days each year and individual visits on the Open Days and Visits page of our website.

We look forward to welcoming you to Roedean in the near future - we are sure that you'll like what you see!
