Bursary Information

Bursary Process For Entry 2020/21

If your parents’/guardians’ household income is less than £35,000 per year, you may be entitled to a Bursary to help with Sixth Form costs. If your application is successful for the Student Bursary, you will be eligible for a weekly payment that will be determined by the Sixth Form based on your individual circumstances.

If your parents’/guardians’ are in receipt of an income-based benefit, you may be entitled to free meals up to the value of £3.25 per day.

Due to the introduction of the Greater Manchester ‘Our Pass’ scheme, The Sixth Form is not offering a Travel Grant option for the 2020/21 academic year.

Our Pass’ (https://ourpass.co.uk/) provides free bus travel within Greater Manchester for all 16-18 year old. However, if you use other types of Public Transport to normally attend The Sixth Form or live outside of Greater Manchester, funds may be available to assist you with travel costs. Please enquire at Student Information for more details on 01204 846 215.

Information and application forms are now available via the link below. Complete the form as soon as possible and hand into Student Information to ensure you receive financial help from the first week of term.
