Last term, before Christmas, BH Academy students who left in summer 2017 returned to collect their GCSE Exam Certificates. As usual the evening was a great success.
Guest speaker, Tamara Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of Ridgeview Wine Estate, presented the certificates. Afterwards, she said …
“It was a real honour to be invited back to the school to present the year 11 leavers with their certificates and awards and share my further education and career experiences with them. I have very fond memories of my time at the school between 1984 -1989. I am so pleased that The Burgess Hill Academy remains a true community school, with committed teachers supporting some of the most talented students in the area to achieve their full potential.”
"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."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
