16-19 Bursary Fund & Free School Meals

The new 16-19 Bursary fund is designed to help support those young people who face the greatest barriers to continuing in education or training post 16. Bursary funds are to be used to help pay for the costs related to participation in full-time education, such as the costs of transport, equipment, books, travel, exam costs, trips, and visits. Some payments may be applied for, of an ad hoc nature, to cover expensive school trips, etc but each will be looked at on an individual basis.

Further information is given on the application form.

Bursary Application16-19 Bursary Fund Policy

As in Years 7 to 11, students in the college may be eligible for Free School Meals funding. This not only helps parents in saving a large amount of money on school dinners, particularly during these tough financial times, but it is also has a financial benefit to the school. All schools receive funding called ‘Pupil Premium’ which is calculated based on the number of children on roll receiving Free School Meals, enabling provisions for extra in-class support, targeted intervention, additional resources, and subsidised school trips for children entitled to free school meals.

Full information and application form can be found on the catering page.
