ISI Inspection February 2023

Posted: 24th March 2023

In February 2023 Burgess Hill Girls Senior and Sixth Form and Burgess Hill Girls Prep and Nursery were inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

We are delighted to share that we have now formally received both reports and both have judged the school as “Excellent” in all areas.

You are welcome to download the reports at the end of this article for the full detail but we thought you might enjoy this short video which highlights some of the key comments made by the inspectors. After the video we have also shared a few quotes that we feel are particularly relevant.

We are exceptionally proud of everything that is achieved by our students but also of all our staff in their devotion to helping students become the best versions of themselves. We are also very grateful to the commitment and support provided by you as parents, grandparents and guardians. We could not keep the school on its upwards trajectory without you.

Finally I will leave you with one additional quote from the report which I believe succinctly captures our community:

“Pupils say they get on very well, explaining, ‘It’s that kind of place; you can be yourself and no one will judge you.’”

Lars Fox, Head


“The commitment to a holistic co-curricular offering firmly underpins high achievement in many fields, enabling pupils to develop their talents wherever they may be.”

“Pupils have an exceptionally kind and inclusive attitude towards their peers.”

“Opportunities to shine are frequent.”

“Pupils are genuinely motivated to succeed and have high aspirations.”

“The variety of activities enriches pupils’ education and is a major strength of the school.”

“Pupils of all ages develop excellent levels of confidence.”

“Pupils attain higher examination grades than expected for their ability.”
