At Roedean, we aim to make the admissions’ process as smooth and informative as possible. We understand that choosing the right senior school for your daughter is a big decision, and we will help to support you through this in any way we can.

Year 7, Year 9, and the Sixth Form are the main entry points, but a good number of girls also join the school in Year 8 and Year 10 each year. The 'How to Apply' booklet will lead you through the admissions' process from start to finish.

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 Registrars, Ms Joanna Clarke and Mrs Alexa Barlow, along with Mrs Hayley Chinnery and Miss Jessica Boles, and the team will be happy to discuss any questions you may have along the way.

If you would like to find out about Scholarships, this information is included in the Scholarships, Awards, Bursaries and Funding booklet for UK applicants or the Scholarship booklet for Overseas applicants.

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 about taster days on the relevant pages 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!
