Tackling Racism

The Black Lives Matter campaign has given us all much to think about, both on a personal level and an educational level. It has made us question if we are doing everything we can to tackle racism within our community, not just in terms of day to day life but also in our educational programmes which have a vital role in shaping the views of our pupils, whilst they are at the school but also in their future lives as they take their place in society.

Looking After Our Boarders

The last few months have been a challenging time for our boarding community. The majority have not been able to return to their families since Christmas and there is still some uncertainty of how they will get home in the Easter holidays and whether they will be able to return to Burgess Hill Girls afterwards.
