Superb modern facilities provide the ideal learning environment and a great place to work.
The College moved to its current modern and inspiring environment on the outskirts of Burgess Hill in 2004. St Paul's has strong travel links from Brighton and London and is situated in the heart of the beautiful Mid-Sussex region with countryside, sea and links to city-living.
We strive for innovation in our everyday teaching practice and our unique e-learning scheme helps us to achieve this.
Moving to a brand new site in Burgess Hill gave us the unique opportunity to develop an innovative 21st century learning environment. We have worked hard to develop the highest standards of learning and teaching and have built a national reputation for using technology to enhance learning.
Students have access to learning any time, anywhere through a scheme which provides a digital mobile device (like a laptop or an iPad) for every student to support their learning at home and school.
As you can imagine this transforms the way we teach and the way students learn. Our approach to learning and teaching is based on 'accelerated learning' to ensure students develop as highly adaptable, independent learners prepared for the fast-paced world.E-Learning
