Leaders of the Future

Burgess Hill Girls provides an ambitious academic education that enables our students to excel and to become leaders of the future. We focus on developing bold, inquisitive and creative girls by providing a supportive and stimulating environment. We balance stress-free academic achievement, success in sport and the creative and performing arts and exceptional pastoral care, with a forward-thinking, unpretentious, ‘can-do’ attitude.

GCSE & A Level Results

Burgess Hill Girls is consistently amongst the top performing independent schools in Sussex for GCSE & A Level results.

In terms of 2023 A Level results, Burgess Hill Girls was the number one performing school in West Sussex, the top performing girls’ school throughout Sussex and the 4th best performing girls’ boarding school in the UK.

Even more important to us than the end results is the value we add to each pupil’s academic achievements. According to the Durham University Centre of Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM), our pupils’ GCSE performance is, on average, at least one grade higher than predicted. We are often in the top ten percent nationally.

Next Steps

The majority of our Sixth Form leavers go on to higher education, studying a wide range of courses; from medicine, accounting and law to animation, robotics and aeronautics.

Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group Universities are popular destinations for our students, but we always work closely with them to explore more diverse options which might result in a better fit, including alternative career pathways such as school leaver programmes and apprenticeships.

“Pupils of all abilities achieve excellent examination results, enabling them to progress to higher education establishments of their choice.”
