 - Burgess Hill

West Sussex County Council (WSCC) has submitted a reserved matters planning application to Mid Sussex District Council (MSDC) to create a new Secondary School in Burgess Hill.

The ‘all-through’ primary and secondary school is planned as part of the wider Burgess Hill Brookleigh development, providing a high-quality education for new and existing residents in the 3,500-home development and across the local area.

The University of Brighton Academies Trust has been appointed to run the new all-through school. West Sussex County Council is creating the secondary school element and the primary school element, which will be designed and built later in the programme, will be created by Homes England.

The secondary school includes all the facilities recommended by the Department for Education for a school of this size including a dedicated Special Support Centre for students with special needs and disabilities.

As a demonstration of the Council’s Climate Change Pledge, the building aims to achieve Passivhaus certification, reflecting ultra-low carbon emissions in operation, with an acute focus on energy efficiency, insulation, on-site energy generation and no use of fossil fuels in the running of the building.
