Junior school admissions
Prospective parents are invited to visit our Junior School during Open Days at Burgess Hill Girls. However, appointments to visit may also be arranged for other times.
Formal & Informal Assessments
Entry is by assessment and our main assessments take place in the January preceding the September entry date.
The younger girls (Reception to Year 2) are assessed in an informal way, spending part of the day with us. This informal assessment also takes place in the January preceding the September entry date.
Girls sit written papers for entry into Year 3 and above, but we always look beyond purely academic results in deciding whether to offer a place. We will also request a copy of a recent school report.
We have a number of scholarships available to girls entering in Year 5 which last until the end of Year 8. These are open to both internal and external candidates and are awarded for academic and musical excellence, if the required standard is achieved.
Information regarding Junior School Scholarships will be available from Monday 4th November 2019. The deadline for applications is Friday 29th November 2019. Our Entrance Examination and Scholarship Day will take place on Thursday 9th January 2020 and Creative Scholarship assessments will take place the week commencing Monday 13th January 2020. Please return a completed registration form and fee to our Admissions team if you would like to apply.

It is possible to admit girls mid-year if there are places available.
