Dear Burgess Hill Business Park Association Member
The Burgess Hill Academy Launch Event
It is with great pleasure that we write to invite you to the launch of The Burgess Hill Academy on Tuesday 27 September 2016 from 6pm to 7.30pm.
We would like to share our vision for creating an outstanding academy for the Burgess Hill community. The school – formerly Oakmeeds Community College – joined the University of Brighton Academies Trust on 1 September, entering an exciting new phase of its history focused on inspiring, motivating and enthusing young people to meet their potential.
The evening will commence with a drinks reception at 6pm, followed by presentations at 6.30pm from Paul Griffiths, Chief Executive of the University of Brighton Academies Trust and Principal Jon Francies. After which there will be a Q&A session, and the opportunity to view a model classroom and a display of improvements planned for the school buildings.
We would be extremely grateful if you could RSVP by no later than Friday 16 September to email@example.com or 01444 251689. Please advise us of any special mobility or dietary requirements.
