- St Andrew's 6th Form
The St Andrew's Sixth Form Bursary Fund is designed to help and support any student who faces financial barriers to participation in education and training.
To be eligible to receive a 16 - 19 Bursary in the 2020/21 academic year, the student must be aged 16 or over and under 19 on August 31, 2020.
The scheme is divided into two parts:
Guaranteed Bursary - for young people in the following defined vulnerable groups:
Discretionary Bursary - for students not eligible for the full Guaranteed Bursary dependent upon individual circumstances and who reside in a household whose parents/carers are in receipt of the following:
All bursary payments will be directly linked to attendance, behaviour and academic commitment. To continue to receive a bursary a student must satisfy the following conditions:
It is best practice to pay 'in kind' bursaries rather than cash, except in exceptional circumstances as advised by the Education Funding Agency.
Such items will be provided to individuals and in the case of books or equipment that are awarded as a Discretionary Bursary, they should be returned at the end of the course to enable them to be re-used by other students.
In the case of Guaranteed Bursaries the value of these items and how their cost is deducted from the £1200 will be made clear to students and those that support them.
How to Apply
Students wishing to apply for a Bursary must complete the Bursary Application Form and return it to the Sixth Form Office no later than 21st December 2019.
All applications will be considered and assessed by the Leadership Team. A parent/carer, where applicable, will be notified of the decision and an indication of the award.
You have the right to appeal and/or complain to the headteacher if you feel your case has not been given fair consideration. This must be in writing. The final decision rests with the Headteacher.
Please note: that the school can withdraw this support if we believe circumstances have changed.
