Bursary Funds

Bursary Fund 2018-19

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 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 14th Friday September 2018.
 

FORM 1:
Vulnerable Bursary Fund Awards
The scheme guarantees bursary payments of £1,200 to certain groups of students deemed most in need of financial support.


During 2017/18 we were pleased to be able to give £1,200 per annum in instalments to the following eligible students:

  • Young people who are 16-18 years, living independently and claiming Income Support
  • Young people who are looked after by the Local Authority
  • Students who are disabled and in receipt of both Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance
  • Young people who are Care Leavers
  • Young people who are 16-18 years, a parent and receiving Income Support
  • Young people who are 16-18 years and receive Income Support for any reason

 

Please apply using the FORM 1:

Vulnerable Bursary Fund Award (see below)
 

FORM 2:
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 for 2018/19.

Please apply using FORM 2. (see below)


FORM 3:
In the event of funding remaining within the school’s Bursary Fund allocation once all other awards have been made, awards of up to £500 will be made to students of families in receipt of tax credits with an additional household income of up to £20,817. This priority will be reviewed in November and if there is still funding available, the eligibility criteria will be changed to £25,521 and students will be invited to apply for the awards.

Please apply using FORM 3. (see below)


IMPORTANT:
Year 12 students who received bursary grants in 2017-18 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, the Heads of Sixth Form for advice.
