Admissions

Applying for a place at the Academy

The Burgess Hill Academy welcomes all applications for prospective new students. Most students join at the start of reception, during the Admissions Round. If you would like to apply for your child to join us outside of the Admissions Round, you can make an In-year Application. Details of both can be found on this page.
