Scholarships and Bursaries


Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries

Scholarships are central to Roedean Moira House’s ethos, and all girls are encouraged to strive to realise their potential. Roedean Moira House Scholars play a vital role in demonstrating, modelling, and championing the values which are at the heart of making Roedean Moira House an exceptional school. They challenge themselves to excel, and benefit greatly from this experience.

Scholarships for entry into Years 7, 9 & 12

At Roedean Moira House, scholarships are available to new entrants to the school in order to recognise academic excellence and/or talent in one or two areas of specialism. They are wroth a fee-reduction which ranges from 5% – 50%, and all are awarded based on performance in the entrance test, assessments if relevant and interview. The two types of Scholarships are outlined below:

1 Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships are awarded to academically able students, and assessment is on the basis of entrance tests (in English, Maths, and Non-Verbal Reasoning) and an interview.

2 Scholarships in Areas of Specialism

Scholarships are available in Art, Dance, Drama, Music and Sport. For each of these scholarships, there is a practical assessment and an interview; ability and potential are taken in consideration as part of the awarding process.
