16-19 Bursary Information
Bursaries provide financial help to young people aged 16 to 19 who face financial barriers to participating in education or training, provided they meet agreed standards of attendance and behaviour.
A copy of the school bursary policy can be found in the ‘our school’ – ‘policies’ section of the website.
Students who are entitled to a bursary can receive support for items necessary for their education. This includes but is not limited to: a bus pass, uniform, stationery, revision guides. All information is given to students at their time of enrolment, however students can apply for a bursary at any time if their circumstances change.
