In creative subjects, Burgess Hill Girls is performing at the highest level with 100% of all entries graded 9 to 7. Alongside consistently strong results in STEM subjects, Burgess Hill Girls students really are tomorrow’s women given employers are increasingly looking for science and technology students with a creative streak.
Head Liz Laybourn said “What we are most proud of is the fact that these amazing academic results are just one part of a rich and diverse range of achievements. From Glyndebourne performers to champion linguists, national athletes to outward bound adventurers, technical theatre specialists to dedicated volunteers, a Burgess Hill Girls education is about far more than just academic results. We encourage every girl to actively challenge herself in new directions, building a profile that adds value in ways that results alone cannot measure. This year’s achievements are superb in every respect and I am immensely proud of all of them.”
