The 16-19 Bursary Fund provides financial support to students whom the government class as ‘vulnerable’, students on Free School Meals, and students from lower-income families to enable participation in post 16 education.
If eligible, students in Year 12 and 13 are invited to apply for a bursary in early September each year. Obviously, if a student’s situation changes during the academic year, they can apply to the bursary fund, as the need arises.
Money from the bursary must support the student’s education and is based on financial need, for example, in paying for textbooks, field trips, the UCAS fee, transport to school, and so on.
