Bursaries

Admissions

Numerous bursaries are offered to families of capable students whose circumstances would otherwise put Roedean beyond their reach.

Each year Roedean offers financial support to parents of students whose circumstances would otherwise put Roedean beyond their reach. Bursaries can be applied for alongside a scholarship application or as a standalone application.


All applicant families need to complete a means-tested bursary application in full. All bursary applications will be evaluated by an external company. Awards will also consider the student’s performance in the entrance tests. The continuation of a bursary is subject to an annual assessment and the student’s sustained performance and contribution in the school.


Who is Eligible to Apply?


UK-Based families, whose daughters are joining Roedean in Years, 7, 9 and 12.


For all current students, please direct all bursary related enquiries to bursary@roedean.co.uk .
