Financial support for students in the Sixth Form: the 16-19 Bursary

Students may be able to apply to the 16-19 Bursary Fund, a scheme from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), if they feel that they need financial support to pay for weekly transport, school meals, equipment, text books or educational trips.

There are two types of bursaries that students may be eligible for:

  1. A vulnerable bursary of up to £1,200 per year for young people in any one of the defined vulnerable groups (in care, a carer, in receipt of income support, in receipt of an employment and support allowance/ universal credit/ disability allowance).
  2. A discretionary bursary which are awarded to students on an individual basis to help with the cost of transport, meals, books, university visits or equipment. This bursary will be at the discretion of the Head of Sixth Form and may require a meeting to discuss each student’s needs.

A student’s bursary is subject to each student meeting the expected standards in their behaviour, uniform or attendance.

Students must apply for their own bursary at the start of Year 12 and again in Year 13, this is even if a student received any sort of support (i.e. free school meals) when they were at Secondary School. Students may be asked to provide evidence of receipt of income or benefits in their household.

Please download your bursary form below or collect one from the Sixth Form Office; all forms must be returned for processing to Mrs Kawal.
