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."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
""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.""
