Bursary Funds

Bursary Fund 2019-20

Financial support available to 16-19 students:

The 16-19 Bursary Fund is a nationally funded scheme, aimed at helping young people facing financial hardship to stay in full time education.  For eligible students the Fund can help towards the cost of essential course related costs such as travel to school, equipment, books, essential trips and attending university/job interviews.  It applies to expenses during the current academic year.

The LGGS Bursary Funds Policy for the academic year 2019/20 is available below.  If you think you may be eligible under one of the following categories, please read the policy and fill in the relevant application forms which should be returned to school as soon as possible and no later than Friday 13th September 2019.
 

Vulnerable Bursary Fund Awards

The scheme guarantees bursary payments to certain groups of students deemed most in need of financial support.

Payment of up to £1,200 could be made to students if at least one of the following applies:

  • The student is in or has recently left local authority care
  • The student receives Income Support or Universal Credit and is financially supporting herself
  • The student receives Disability Living Allowance (DLA) in her own name and either Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) or Universal Credit
  • The student receives Personal Independence Payment (PIP) in her own name and either ESA or Universal Credit


Discretionary Bursary Fund Awards

The School will also make discretionary Bursary awards to other students most in need of financial assistance to enable them to remain in full time education.  Receipt of a Bursary will be conditional on the student meeting agreed targets set by the school as outlined in the sixth form contract. Students in receipt of Free School Meals will be eligible to receive a Bursary award of up to £800 in 2019/20.

In the event of funding remaining within the school’s Bursary Fund allocation once all other awards have been made, awards will be made to students of families in receipt of tax credits and within certain household income criteria.  Full details of these criteria are available in the policy below.  Awards of up to £600 could be made to eligible students.


IMPORTANT:

Year 12 students who received bursary grants in 2018-19 will need to re-apply for Year 13.

ADVICE:   If you are unsure about what to do, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Cahalin or the Heads of Sixth Form for advice.
