Sixth Form Bursary

A key priority for the Government is to close the gap in attainment between those from less well-off and those from more affluent backgrounds and to ensure that every young person participates in and benefits from a place in 16-19 education or training.

The 16 to 19 Bursary Fund is money the government has given to local authorities, schools, colleges and other education and training providers (institutions) to give to disadvantaged students. Its purpose is to provide financial support to help students overcome specific barriers to participation, so they can remain in education. For information please download the PDF from the link below.
