Overview I am delighted to introduce the Early Entrance Programme for 11+ and 13+ entry to Roedean School. This entry route to Roedean is ideal for applicants for whom Roedean is their first choice. The Early Entrance Programme is designed to fast-track certainty of a place whilst still enabling prospective pupils to take part in our programme of inspiring and challenging activity days. In the Summer of Year 5 (11+ entry) or the Summer of Year 6 (13+ entry), early entry places can be awarded following successful performances in our entrance papers, an interview with the Headmaster, and upon receipt of a supportive reference from the applicants current school. Pupils will also be able to access the Scholarship assessment process in the January preceding September entry. Our enduringly popular schedule of activity days and admissions events successfully ensure that all girls feel at ease within the School by the time they enroll and gives each girl an opportunity to shine within her field.

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 in any way we can. Our Director of Admissions, Mrs Diana Banham, and the Admissions Team, will be your main points of contact throughout the process, and will be happy to discuss any questions you may have along the way. For those families who decide to follow the standard entry route, entrance examinations are held in the January preceding September entry, and there are opportunities for late testing the March preceding entry. We look forward to welcoming you to the school in the near future. Oliver Blond Headmaster

GLOSSARY Open Days An Open Day is an ideal opportunity to get a real sense of our unique and holistic vision, and is designed to give you a broad overview of the school and an opportunity to meet staff and girls. You are encouraged to attend at least one Open Day. Experience Days From Science to Netball, Visual & Performing Arts to code-breaking, Roedean offers a variety of experience days to challenge and inspire, with something for everyone. Roedean deferred-entry testing Entrance testing in English, Maths and Non-Verbal testing, and an interview. Rockpools Day Rockpools Day is a highly anticipated event normally held in June of Year 5 for girls following the standard route and will also be open to Year 5 girls following the early-entrance programme. At Rockpools, the girls disappear down Roedean’s secret tunnel to the sea and explore rockpools, along with team-building activities. It is an informal and hugely enjoyable day when the girls begin to build friendships with each other and their relationship with the school. Scholars Masterclasses For those considering applying for a scholarship, we have Scholars Masterclasses in the following areas: Art, Classical Music, Dance and Drama. These Masterclasses are an opportunity for your daughter to shine and be challenged in her chosen field. Discovery Day Discovery Day, which takes place in November of Year 6, is the first formal admissions event for registered girls following the standard route and will also be open to Year 6 girls following the early-entrance programme. The day is one of the highlights of the year and is focused around themed academic activities. Taster Day Taster Days offered in Spring of Year 7 to 13+ entry applicants, will allow pupils to enjoy some ‘taster lessons’ and other group activities covering a wide range of co-curricular interests. Taster days are also available on request to 11+ applicants in the Spring of Year 6. Scholarship Assessments Those who have applied for practical scholarships will be invited to the school to take part in a practical assessment and everyone who has applied for a scholarship will have a general scholarship interview. New Girls’ Day An opportunity for those who have accepted to meet their peers, tutors and teachers, and find out pratical information ahead of September.
