We are looking forward to hosting a virtual open evening this year!
Please see the links below to join us on TEAMs for a live event.
Ordinarily it would be my pleasure to invite you to visit us at The Burgess Hill Academy Open Evening which should have taken place on Thursday 8th October. This event is always popular and extremely well attended. However, this is no ordinary year. Therefore, I warmly invite you to attend one of our Live Virtual Open Evening Talks.
These will still happen on Thursday 8th October, and parents have the choice of which talk to attend which will take place via Teams. Each talk will also include a guided tour of the academy recorded during the school day and the opportunity to ask questions.
This is a very exciting time at the academy. We celebrated our Good in all areas Ofsted in May 2019 and my focus is on continuous improvement as we embark on our journey to become an outstanding school. This year we embarked on an extensive refurbishment programme, with many new classrooms, science labs, as well as very old windows and fascias replaced. We have also extended the school hall so that students can enjoy their breaks in an outdoor covered dining area. We have seen record numbers of new students at The Academy moving from 5 forms to 8 forms of entry.
We aim to deliver the highest quality of education for your sons and daughters so that they can achieve their academic potential, develop their talents and fulfil their future ambitions. ‘Believe in your best’ will guide our school community – our students, parents and staff - as we work together to create an academy for the Burgess Hill community to be proud of.
I look forward to welcoming you to our virtual open evening.
