Pupils and staff at Burgess Hill Girls are celebrating another successful set of GCSE results.

The school said 64% of all entries were graded A*/A (new grades 9-7), with nearly half the cohort gaining at least seven or more A*/A.

These grades were achieved across a wide range of subjects.

In STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths), 70% of all entries were graded A*/A, while  96% achieved A*-B or new grades 9-6.

In Art and Latin, all students gained A*/A grades and in Religious Studies the figure was 96%.

Burgess Hill Girls Head Liz Laybourn said: "Our girls have again achieved superb results across a range of subjects, from Art to STEM, demonstrating the breadth and depth of the education we provide.

"We believe that an all-girl environment is particularly conducive to success in STEM subjects."

She added: "Our students have taken the new, harder GCSEs in English and Maths – introduced this year - in their stride."
