The Bursary is available to help disadvantaged students with the essential costs of studying including:
The school makes every effort to ensure that the Bursary Funds are awarded fairly, widely and to the students most in need.
No guarantee can be given that funds will be available and funding limits may apply. At the start of the academic year, we are uncertain of the number of applicants and therefore cannot guarantee financial assistance in every case, but welcome applicants.
Receiving bursary funding does not affect receipt of other means-tested benefits paid to families, such as income support, job seeker’s allowance, child benefit, working tax credit and housing benefits.
What happens next
The outcome of applications will be communicated to the applicant in writing and will include details of any funding allocated and how it will be paid. Successful applicants will be required to sign a 16-19 Bursary Fund Agreement, a copy of which must be returned to the School Business Manager.
