Applications for the current 2016/17 academic year are now closed.
The 16-19 Bursary Fund is paid by the Education Funding Agency (EFA) to Schools and Colleges so that they may provide financial help to students whose access to or completion of education might be inhibited by financial consideration. Each school has been allocated a fixed sum of money for the 16-19 Bursary Fund (the amount varies from school to school based on demographic information).
Students who are eligible must apply by 4.30pm on Friday 23 September 2016 and must also supply the required evidence to support the application. Students who are eligible and who meet the requirements of the funding will expect to receive 3 termly payments over the course of the academic year, subject to satisfactory attendance and conduct.
Please read this document carefully to ensure that you fully understand the requirements of the grant and that do not miss important application deadlines which are non-negotiable. To further assist you, a frequently asked questions (FAQ) document is attached at the back of the application form and should hopefully answer any queries or concerns that you may have.
If you have any further questions, please get in touch with Mr Dwyer, Sixth Form Manager or Mr Haslam, School Business Manager.
