Pastoral Care

High expectations set

“The contribution of arrangements for pastoral care is excellent… Relationships are positive between staff and pupils… The school is extremely successful in setting out high expectations of good behaviour.” (Independent Schools Inspectorate)

Individual Care

As you enter the gates of Burgess Hill Girls you will instantly feel a sense of warmth and friendship. The individual care, support and true sense of belonging will guarantee your daughter has the most fulfilling experience at every stage of her education.

‘A unique community where every child is known and knows this to be the case’ is our overarching motto.


Pastoral Care at Burgess Hill Girls

A Partnership

At whatever stage your daughter enters this outstanding school the partnership between you as parents, the school as a whole community and your daughter begins its exciting journey. The transition from Prep School to Senior School to Sixth Form and throughout Boarding is stimulating and exciting but consciously made a seamlessly, stress free, process. We pride ourselves in knowing your daughter and how best to support her at every stage of her school life.

At Burgess Hill Girls we aim to ensure that your daughter

  • is made to feel welcome
  • is individually known for who they are and knows this to be the case
  • is provided with a supportive, stimulating and challenging learning environment
  • is encouraged to take advantage of the wide range of opportunities available to her
  • knows who she can approach and feels able to do so
  • has the necessary guidance to support her in making important life choices

Choosing your daughter’s school is not just about academic provision or facilities. The partnership between you, the staff and your daughter is fundamental in ensuring that her experience is positive and productive. We encourage you to contact us whenever there is an issue to be raised or a problem that needs to be shared.
