“ I have never felt so welcomed and at home as I did when I started at this school. Therefore I truly believe that no matter who you are, what you look like or where you come from, Burgess Hill School for Girls accepts your differences and allows you to grow and develop” – Lower 6th Student
Every year our students perform exceptionally well in external examinations, but this is only part of the story. We provide an environment in which girls are expected to take full advantage of opportunities. We challenge and encourage them to extend and develop their individual interests and talents. They are inspired by those around them, engage positively in activities and achieve amazing things. The exceptional academic ‘value add’ as measured by Durham University CEM Centre, confirms our success in enhancing the girls’ academic achievement as well as providing friendly surroundings in which to live and learn.
International students sit entrance examinations in English and Maths. A school reference is also required. Students are expected to achieve a good standard in both papers. A higher standard is required in Maths for students wishing to study Maths or Further Maths at A level. The proportion of international students will not exceed 1/3 in Sixth Form and 1/5 in Years 7-11.
