Have you been wondering what Boarding at Burgess Hill Girls is like?


Give boarding a try!


We have 7 beds available from the 2nd – 11th July, so for the first time day girls aged 11 or above can try boarding for free. A delicious evening meal and breakfast will be provided and girls are invited to join in the fun with the boarding community, activities range from cooking and crafting to multi-sports and film nights.
