Head's Welcome

Welcome to our special community

Our mission at Burgess Hill Girls is to help develop your daughter into one of Tomorrow’s Women.
Because we are girls-only, 100% of our facilities, curriculum and philosophy are designed to provide girls with all the skills and opportunities they need to fulfil their potential in life. Our empowering community gives girls the complete freedom to be bold, to take risks, to challenge themselves, to try new experiences and to actively make and learn from their mistakes.

Burgess Hill Girls is a small enough community that each pupil is known as an individual yet large enough to provide breadth, choice, and opportunity. We believe this powerful blend is a vital ingredient in enabling our pupils to realise their potential. The relationships between staff and pupils are a mix of humour and focussed teaching and learning. Staff have an infectious can-do attitude and take great pride in helping girls discover new skills and talents. Expectations are high, but so is our confidence that each girl can achieve something special. Our academic results are amongst the strongest in the county, but this school is about much more than academic results, from producing Glyndebourne performers to champion linguists, national athletes to outward bound adventurers, and technical theatre specialists to dedicated volunteers.

 

 

“The school is almost non-selective and yet achieves better results than many more competitive schools. The holistic approach to education, where equal value is placed on academic achievement and soft skills, produces extremely confident young women who grow up to believe they can be whatever they want to be.”

This recent quote from the Good School Guide sums up everything I believe to be true of Burgess Hill Girls.

If this sounds like the education you would like for your daughter, please book a visit to find out more. We would be delighted to meet you and your family and show you around our school.
