Sixth Form Bursary

To be eligible to receive a bursary you must be:


  • Aged over 16 and under 19 on 31 August in the academic year in which you start your course
  • Resident in the EU for 3 years or more
  • Enrolled on A Level Courses
  • On a means-tested benefit, or dependant on parents on a means-tested benefit (we will use eligibility for Free School Meals in the first instance), in financial hardship or in the 'vulnerable group' as defined by the ESFA above.


If you are applying for the Guaranteed Bursary Award you must be able to provide evidence that demonstrates you meet the eligibility criteria set out above to receive an award up to £1200 p.a.


If you are applying for a Discretionary Bursary Award, you must be able to provide evidence that demonstrates you or your parents/carers are in receipt of a means-tested benefit and/or that you are in financial hardship. We will use our discretion to make awards to students in ways that best fit their needs and circumstances.


Priority for these discretionary awards will be given in the first instance to those students eligible for Free School Meals.  An application form is attached which must be printed, signed and then given to the deputy head of sixth form, Miss Waters. You and the school will be informed as to whether your application has been accepted.  All eligible students are encouraged to apply for FSM as soon as possible.
