16-19 Bursary Fund

Schools and academies have been given an allocation of money to help support young people in education. The Robert Smyth bursary will be awarded to students to help with the cost of meals, transport, books and equipment, and other course-related costs.

Financial assistance will be available under the 16-19 Bursary scheme as follows:

  • Bursary of £1,200 per year to all young people in the nominated vulnerable groups (i.e. In care, care leavers, disabled young people and students receiving income support).
  • Bursary of £800 to students receiving Free School Meals.
  • Discretionary Bursary is targeted towards students facing financial barriers to participation, such as the costs of transport, books and equipment.

Please see Mrs Hall for further details regarding Free School Meals and the 16-19 Bursary Fund.
