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.”
"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."
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"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."
"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."
