Burgess Hill Girls School
“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.” – Good Schools Guide 2019
Burgess Hill Girls is a top-performing day and boarding school in Sussex for girls aged two and a half to eighteen years of age.
Whatever the stage at which your daughter joins Burgess Hill Girls you can be confident of two things: that she will be known for who she is as an individual and she will be provided with an outstanding, transformative education of the whole person.
Our school motto, ‘I am, I can, I should, I will’, conveys and underpins our whole approach, identifying and releasing the potential of your daughter as she proceeds, giving her the very best possible opportunities to become a successful women of the future.
As parents, success will be having a happy and healthy daughter who loves going to school, loves to learn, loves participating, and is able to make friends for life. For the girls, success may be doing well in lessons and tests, being part of a team, playing a musical instrument and having fun with friends. At Burgess Hill Girls we pride ourselves on unlocking the academic talent that is found within our girls and strongly believe anyone can thrive in our high-achieving environment. Whilst Burgess Hill Girls aims to provide the best opportunities for everyone to excel, we believe that success is more than obtaining the highest marks and grades. We recognise just as much all those fantastic qualities that are not materialistic, or target driven. Success at our school is when we produce bright, confident and independent young women who have and will continue to achieve great things.
Burgess Hill Girls stands in 14 acres of beautiful grounds within a conservation area close to Burgess Hill’s town centre in the centre of Sussex. All aspects of the school are located on this one campus: Nursery, Pre-prep, Prep, Senior, Sixth Form and Boarding Houses. The school is only a five-minute walk from the railway station (on the London to Brighton line) and close to excellent road networks (10 miles from Brighton and only 20 miles from Gatwick). A flexible, daily minibus service is provided for girls across Sussex and beyond.
