16-19 Bursary Fund

The 16 to 19 Bursary Fund provides financial support to help students overcome specific barriers to participation so they can remain in education. There are 2 types of 16 to 19 bursaries: (1) A vulnerable bursary of up to £1,200 a year for young people in one of the defined vulnerable groups. (2) Discretionary bursaries which institutions award to meet individual needs, for example, help with the cost of transport, meals, books and equipment Students who want to apply for support from the bursary fund should contact the Head of Sixth form Mr Jalil who can support with the application process. There are a number of criteria students will have to meet to ensure they are paid the bursary. This will include ensuring that attendance and punctuality are above 95% For further information on the 16-19 Bursary Fund, please contact Mr Jalil or follow the link for more information.
