The Diocese of Chichester Academy Trust is bidding to the Department for Education to open a new Church of England all-through school in the Burgess Hill area in 2019. Due to extensive planned house building in the area, West Sussex County Council has identified a shortfall in primary and secondary school places in the next few years. This new school would provide those places and give parents in Burgess Hill the choice to educate their children within a new school with Christian values, an inclusive school which would welcome those of all faiths and those of no faith.

Our ethos for educating the children in our care is that of ‘life in all its fullness’ through which we develop and nurture the person as a whole whilst striving for the highest academic standards.

The school would open to its first Reception pupils in 2019 and its first Year 7 pupils in 2022.
