Burgess Hill Girls is listed second for GCSE results across all schools, regardless of fees.

Liz Laybourn, headteacher, said: “It is great to see our aim to offer exceptional value for money is validated by this analysis.

“We are not super selective, so although we are proud of the excellent results that our pupils consistently achieve, we are even prouder of the progress they make during their time with us, which is often a jump up by one to two GCSE grades.

“Just as important to us is their wider personal development and achievements in co- curricular areas such as sport, the arts and work in the community.”
