When pupils leave Burgess Hill Girls our aim is that they have all the self-belief, determination, and life skills they need to follow and achieve their dreams, whatever they may be.
They don’t become Old Girls. They become Bold Girls.
Burgess Hill Girls has a formidable history of developing women who have gone on to make their mark on the world. From the Willoughby sisters, Kelly and Holly, Neuroscientist Professor Francesca Happé to Diversity Champion and Lawyer Funke Abimbola MBE. We are also very fortunate to have six inspirational Bold Girls amongst our staff, Head of Drama Emma Cassim, Director of Sport (and England Masters hockey player) Suzy Clapp, Maths teacher Catherine Kempton, Prep school teacher Greer Williams, Admissions assistant Chloe Shilton and our school nurse, Liz Hall.
These and many other Bold Girls make regular visits back to Burgess Hill Girls, sharing their life stories and encouraging pupils to set their sights high. One of our most recent visitors was Funke Abimbola. Watch the video below to learn about her story:
