16 to 19 Bursary Support

Financial support is available to eligible students from the 16 to 19 bursary fund. See our 16 to 19 Bursary Statement 2023-24 for details of our eligibility criteria.

The fund is intended to support students aged 16 to 19 in overcoming specific financial barriers to participation so they can remain in education.


Conditions for receipt of bursary

Payments from the bursary fund are conditional on students meeting the following requirements in relation to their standards of attendance and behaviour.

  • The student's level of attendance is expected to be above 95% and punctuality above 96%, unless there are satisfactory mitigating circumstances. The school reserves the right to withdraw funding if attendance falls below 95%.
  • Prolonged absence must be supported by medical evidence (if attendance falls below 95%).
  • The student must be up-to-date with all work commitments.
  • Students who fail to meet these conditions may have their payment withheld, but we will always take students’ individual circumstances into consideration. This includes considering the impact on attendance that might be caused by illness, caring responsibilities or other exceptional circumstances.
  • A student must not have broken the Sixth form code of conduct or behaviour policy.
