Senior School Admissions

Year 7 – 11 Entry

Prospective families are invited to visit our Senior School during Open Days at Burgess Hill Girls. However, appointments to visit may also be arranged on an individual basis.

If, following your visit, you wish to register an application please return a completed Registration Form alongside a recent school report. You will also be required to arrange payment of the £100 registration fee. Once received we would then arrange for your daughter to join us for a taster day and/or invite her to join us for entrance testing.

Entrance Exams

The Entrance Exam & Scholarship Assessment process for Year 7 to 9 entry takes place every January, for entry in the following academic year. The exact date will be confirmed in due course.

If you have already registered an application for September 2023 entry you will be sent a copy of the Entrance Exam/Scholarship Information Booklet and Scholarship Application Form in November 2022. Please contact our admissions team if you would like to receive this information but haven’t yet registered an application.

We are still able to accept applications for September 2022 entry, in this instance entrance testing will be arranged as part of a taster day.
The entrance exams for Senior School consist of an English paper, Maths paper and online cognitive ability test. We aim to make the entrance examination process as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. The main purpose is to establish the standard the students have reached at their current schools so that we can be confident that the education we provide will build on their current strengths and meet their educational needs.

Please note that all current Burgess Hill Girls Prep School students wishing to continue into the Senior School have a guaranteed place in Year 7. However, they will still be required to attend the entrance exam assessment day, and complete an online cognitive ability test. This test demonstrates a student’s progress through their time at the school and also allows the school to place students in sets going into Senior School. Current students do not need to register for a place for Senior School.

Mid Year Places

It is also possible for us to admit students at any point during the academic year, if there are places available. In this instance we would arrange entrance testing on an individual basis, please get in touch for further information.
