I think most independent schools have plenty of Chinese girls. They keep the schools going and do wonders for the results!!

Roedean is considered to have extremely high proportions. I haven't seen any stats for a few years so you should check (ask them) but at one point rumour has it they had reached mid to high 40s. This can have a big impact on weekend life.

Chinese girls are a wonderful influence. They are very hard working and usually come from very loving/warm families, IME. I would be very happy for my daughter to be surrounded by lots of Chinese girls. They have a brilliant work ethic and make loyal friends.
Are you perhaps a Chinese person wondering about opportunities for your daughter to speak English with native English pupils?

My dds experience was that the Chinese girls very much stayed in a unit and didn't mix particularly. They don't tend to play much sport so get a bit left out that way.

Heard most Chinese girls study in Sixth form and the Year 7-11 have fewer girls from China. In fact Chinese students are in most independent schools, not Roedean alone.

From school fact sheet, there are 60% from UK, 30% from Asia and the rest from Europe, North America and Africa.
