Our school is set within 14 acres of beautiful grounds within a conservation area close to Burgess Hill town centre in the heart of Mid Sussex. The site comprises of open playing fields surrounded by natural woodland. The buildings date back to 1704 and are a mixture of Victorian and Edwardian villas complemented with sympathetic contemporary buildings.
Completed in 2014, it is a state-of-the-art drama, performance and music academy encompassing a 320-seat tiered auditorium. The original building was refurbished and extended to provide a theatre which is used by the school and the wider community.
This is a modern contemporary building built in 2008 for our expanding Nursery and infants classes. The building is set into its sloping site which allows for high ceilings and vaulted corridors which create a feeling of space and tranquillity.
There are three Victorian houses which provide on-site accommodation for our boarding community. Each house is well-equipped to provide a homely feel; they are refurbished on a regular basis to provide modern facilities.
The main teaching block of the Senior School is Webb House. It was built in the early nineties and was refurbished during the summer of 2015. A Learning Resource Centre, computer rooms and state-of-the-art teaching facilities provide a clear vision for teaching in the modern world.
PRE-PREP AND PREP School

There is a learning hub, computer suite, cookery and technology room. The buildings are surrounded by landscaped grounds with equipment to challenge children of all ages.
A purpose built facility linking neatly to the performing areas, modern practice rooms surround the main teaching areas.

A standalone building provides modern accommodation. Lecture rooms, study areas and common rooms make a truly unique environment for students to flourish and learn.
This is a sprawling array of light and airy rooms all centred around an exhibition area. Dedicated Sixth Form studios provide a perfect location for A Level study.
The refurbished science centre opened in 2010 and provides superb teaching facilities. The sciences laboratories are split per floor for the chemistry, biology and physics departments.
Well-maintained sports fields are used for athletics, hockey and summer sports. The numerous tennis and netball courts are all floodlit and provide sport surfaces which are used well into the evening. The floodlit 3G astro (artificial grass with rubber chip) provides a superb training facility.
