Burgess Hill School for Girls

Keymer Road Burgess Hill West Sussex RH15 0EG

“Burgess Hill School for Girls stands in 14 acres of beautiful grounds within a conservation area close to the centre of the town. We have small classes with well qualified, professional staff dedicated to helping each pupil realise her potential. With our focus firmly on girls and the way they learn, the single sex environment gives the girls space and security in which to build their self esteem and confidence. Partnerships with local schools and involvement within the community provide a further dimension; girls are encouraged to seek challenge and embrace opportunities. As a day school we welcome in the region of fifty overseas students and girls from other regions of the UK as boarders. The combination of all age groups and different nationalities gives a pleasing diversity and the school is enriched by the interaction between the girls. Senior Students benefit from the opportunity to work with the younger children in our Nursery and Junior Schools and they are excellent role models in return.”
