16-19 Bursary 2023-24

The 16-19 Bursary Fund is a Government funded scheme to ensure that students are not disadvantaged in their Sixth Form studies by financial need. Schools and Colleges are allocated a sum of money which is distributed by the school to support students with the following costs:

  • Public transport to and from school
  • Food and drink during the school day
  • Necessary equipment for study of specialist subjects

The bursary is not provided to cover costs of any activity that is not directly associated with study in the school Sixth Form.

The bursary is allocated by schools against a set of criteria set by the school. The funding available for the bursary is strictly limited. You can download our bursary policy below, and link to the Government page related to the bursary.
