The 16-19 Bursary Fund aims to help close the gap in attainment for those students who come from a less affluent background and to ensure that every young person can participate and benefit from 16-19 education.
Students from defined vulnerable groups and those experiencing the greatest financial disadvantages and course-related costs will receive support from the fund.
If your circumstances change during the year you must inform the school so that the necessary adjustments can be made. Students joining us during the year may make an application as their circumstances dictate at any time.
Bursary awards are intended to meet participation related costs eg. transport, exam re-sits, educational visits, books and equipment, university open day visits and interviews etc., and will be targeted at the needs of individual students.
For further information or assistance, please speak to Miss Faulconbridge.
Please see attached an application form. This should be completed and returned to Mrs Macdonald in the school office by Friday 22 September 2017 together with all accompanying evidence.
