The Burgess Hill Academy in association with Burgess Hill Business Parks were proud to present their Work Experience Student of the Year Award during their Post 16 Information Evening on 21st September.
Over 120 Year 10 students were placed in companies within Sussex and the surrounding area, some even travelled up to London. The winner gave an excellent presentation to the parents and honoured guests attending the Post 16 Information Evening on their work experience placement and the value it gave to their school life.
The winner was Lauren Wickens, who spent her week at Boots the Chemist in Brighton where she made the most of the opportunity afforded to her and gained valuable experience. The Academy are extremely grateful for the time that local businesses are able to give to help our students understand the working world.

""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
