A Second Home

Boarding at our school is not just a place for the girls to stay while they are studying, it is a second home where they are nurtured and encouraged to thrive.

We are very much a large extended family where every student is seen as an individual, bringing their own levels of fun, enthusiasm, determination and quirkiness along with them but when gathered together become a fantastic, caring community living under the same roof!

A large and diverse family we may be, but like a family we are all here to help and support each other, to get each other through difficult times and celebrate the good ones.



Skills Development

During their time with us the girls develop a whole range of skills that will set them in good stead for University and beyond. They learn to become capable, independent, flexible, understanding, and develop a high level of confidence and a sense of self.

The girls are encouraged to give their opinions and to take an active role in organising activities. They take on different responsibilities as they get older and have more freedom, but there is always someone around to guide them.



Boarding School Sussex


As a Boarding School in Sussex there is no shortage of activities we can offer to girls. With the vibrant city of Brighton just a few minutes away and the Beautiful South Downs National Park on our doorstep our boarders have a wealth of stimulating and exciting opportunities to take in over the weekends and in their freetime. Activities which the girls have taken part in over the last academic year have included, ice-skating, West-End Theatre trips, Go-Karting, lazer-tag, paintball as well as visiting the local bonfire celebrations and village fairs.

A Positive journey

As a Burgess Hill Boarder, the girls truly feel cared for and leave here with fond memories and life-long friends both with their peers and with the staff who have looked after them on this very important part of their journey.
