16-19 Bursary Fund
Each year government funds are provided to the school to pass back to students in need of financial support. This money is used to support and improve the education outcomes of those most in need. We have chosen to specifically target those previously identified as Pupil Premium or Ever 6 FSM students as these are nationally accepted indicators of need, however any Sixth Form student can apply to the 16 – 19 Bursary Fund.
The needs of each student are different, so students can apply for financial help towards any aspect of their education; this may include things like travel to school, books, art supplies, musical instruments, electronic devices, specialised uniform or kit, field trips etc.
The 16 – 19 Bursary application form needs to be completed and returned to the Finance Office. Applications are then reviewed and students may be called in for a short interview. We may require evidence of any welfare benefits that you may be in receipt of. Once a decision has been made students will be notified by email.
