Overview:

Burgess Hill Girls was established in response to local demand from parents in the year 1906. It was inaugurated under the guidance of Miss Beatrice Goode and her sisters Patricia and Ada with an aim to impart quality education to girls’ equivalent to what boys were receiving at that time.
