Sixth Form Bursary
Dear Parents, Carers and Students
Sixth Form 16-19 Bursary Fund
I would like to take this opportunity to remind all students in the Sixth Form that might be facing financial difficulties that we operate a Discretionary 16-19 Bursary Fund. If your household income is less than £30,500 per annum you will be eligible to claim up to £125.00 per academic year for specific educational purposes e.g. books, equipment, examination resit fees, university applications fees, university visits, uniform, educational visits and transport costs for school trips .
To apply for the Discretionary 16-19 Bursary Fund please complete the form available from Mrs J McBride and return it to her in the Sixth Form with the required up-to-date evidence of total household income.
In addition to the Discretionary 16-19 Bursary Fund mentioned above we also operate a Weekly Bursary Payment Scheme up to £20.00 per week maximum for students whose household income is below £16,190 per annum. If you are eligible for this scheme you will also be eligible for the Discretionary 16-19 Bursary above and you might also be eligible for Free School Meals (application from Reception).
To apply for the Weekly Bursary Fund or the Discretionary 16-19 Bursary please complete the Application Form available from Mrs McBride in the Sixth Form along with any relevant evidence paperwork in relation to household income as well as Child Benefit, Income Support etc
Registration for this scheme is confidential and it will not affect any other benefits you are claiming.
If you have any queries about either scheme please contact Mrs McBride on 01737 359103 or email her on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mr Gary Newton, Director of Sixth Form
