The 16 – 19 bursary fund aims to help close the gap in attainment between those from poorer and more affluent backgrounds, and to ensure every young person can participate in and benefit from a place in 16 – 19 education.
Students from defined vulnerable groups or those experiencing the greatest financial disadvantages and/or course-related costs will receive support from the fund. If your circumstances change during the year you may apply at any time.
Bursary payments are intended to meet participation-related costs only (e.g. transport, exam re-sits, educational visits, books and equipment, university open day visits and interviews) and will be targeted at individual students.
Further information and an application form is available below, or please see Mrs Cottriall.
