Boarding Admissions

Direct Application

If you wish to find out about the boarding options at Burgess Hill Girls, or to start an application, please contact our admissions team. If you are in the UK we would then arrange for you to visit us for a personal tour and meeting with the Head. If you are currently overseas we would instead arrange an online meeting with the Head, so that you can find out more about the school, and the opportunities available, before registering an application.

We will then send over a copy of the registration form for completion. Prospective boarding pupils should also send a copy of their two most recent school reports along with a copy of their passport for preliminary assessment. They will then be required to complete an English paper, Maths paper, and an online cognitive ability test. There is an English paper for native speakers, and one for those who speak English as an additional language. Applicants can complete these tests under the supervision of an Agent in their offices, at their current school or at the British Council. This can also be sat at Burgess Hill Girls, if you are able to visit in person.

Pupils who are shortlisted for a place will need to have an online interview, we will also request a reference from their current school.

Should an offer be made, this must be formally accepted by the family, by completing and returning the acceptance form with the required deposit. Once this is received, Burgess Hill Girls will apply for a student visa, if required, and send further detailed information about starting at Burgess Hill Girls.

Please note that it is also possible for us to admit students at any point during the academic year, if there are places available.

Using An Educational Agent

You may wish to work with an educational agent to manage your application. The agent will deal with us on your behalf to arrange registration and testing. The agent will explain the enrolment procedure, offer advice and translate the relevant paperwork. If you would like information regarding agencies with which we have an existing agreement please email our admissions team. Please note they do charge for their services.

Note To Agencies

We are happy to consider new educational agencies and work with them to assist with the placement of the student. If you would like to become an agent for Burgess Hill Girls, please contact the Admissions Department before an application is submitted.

To apply to Burgess Hill Girls on behalf of a student, you will need to send copies of the student’s school reports, birth certificate and passport via email to our admissions team. We will then confirm if the school is happy to proceed with the application. The student’s parents will then be asked to complete a registration form alongside the £150 registration fee. The registration fee can be paid by cheque, banker’s draft or directly into the school’s bank account (details below). Once registered, the entrance examinations will be sent to the Agent’s offices by email.

Please note that an Agency Agreement needs to be in place before Burgess Hill Girls is able to release the payment of any commission due.

When making an application on behalf of a student, agents should provide background information about the prospective student’s family, her extra-curricular interests, any qualifications or certificates attained, her ability in English (or an equivalent IELTS score), and what she hopes to achieve by coming to study in the UK. If applying for a place in either Year 9 or Year 12, then an indication of GCSE or A Level subjects is much appreciated.
