Building a future
If GCSE years provide the building blocks of core skills then the Sixth Form is the foundation on which each individual builds their future – the first real opportunity to stretch their wings, make decisions and take responsibility for their learning and development. This is where students make the transition from a structured and prescriptive programme designed to keep their options open, to the freedom to follow their chosen courses, forge their own path and pursue their aspirations.
Most girls choose to study four subjects in the Lower Sixth and take three A Levels in the Upper Sixth, whilst others take advantage of our flexible approach, creating a personalised programme to ensure the development of our truly individual learning portfolio.
The BOLD Programme is how we prepare our Sixth Form for the evolving and ever-changing demands of the world. It will empower our girls with the skills necessary for them to thrive in their professional and personal lives. It will ensure that Bold Girls leave Burgess Hill Girls equipped with not only exceptional academic qualifications, but with the social, interpersonal and leadership skills required to excel in every capacity in their future. Read more about the BOLD Programme.
Careers advice and support with university applications will form a significant part of the extra guidance we provide. Mock interviews with members of the local Rotary club, a formal networking dinner, business breakfast meetings, useful contacts for relevant work experience and specialist taster courses are all available.
consistently high levels of success
We are very proud of the consistently high levels of success gained by the girls in all aspects of their endeavours. The vast majority of the girls go on to university, foundation art courses or music colleges, whilst a few choose other routes to exciting careers. Our excellent careers advice and academic support ensures that our students secure places at the leading universities, colleges and organisations in their field.
“The close-knit community at Burgess Hill Girls makes it totally unique. Teachers have a genuine desire, as do the pupils, to help others reach their full potential.”
