Further Information


Do you have a bursary scheme?

You will be eligible for a small amount of financial support if you are in either in care or you are on free school meals. For 2023/24 this is £15 per week if students meet the requirements of the Home School Agreement e.g. 95%+ attendance. If you think you will be eligible then complete the application form which is available from Student Reception.

The Bursary is only guaranteed for students in care. All other students MUST apply for free school meals and have this given to them by their local council, please go to the relevant website.

You might be eligible for financial support if your family earns less that £15,860. This will be publicised when we know if we have sufficient funds available. Please listen for information from your tutor in your weekly bulletin.
