“The school is almost non-selective and yet achieves better results than many more competitive schools.” Good Schools Guide 2019
Academic excellence is achieved through high expectations, strong motivation, excellent teaching and small classes. The majority of our Sixth Form leavers go on to higher education, studying a wide range of courses such as medicine, accountancy and law, while others follow careers in art, drama and music.
GCSE & a level Results 2019
Burgess Hill Girls is consistently amongst the top performing independent schools in Sussex for GCSE & A Level results. In 2020, 83% of GCSE grades were 9-7 (A* – A), 85% of A Level grades were A* – B and 64% were A* – A.
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 Evalution 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.
