The Bursary is designed to help support students who face the greatest barriers to continuing in education or training Post 16. An example of bursary use could be for transport costs, equipment or materials for courses.
The Scheme is administered at The Island VI Form and receipt of bursary is conditional upon high attendance to lessons and a good attitude to learning.
The bursary application takes household income into account and students who are entitled to free school meals are automatically entitled to apply. Young people in defined vulnerable groups must provide supporting evidence of their circumstances to prove eligibility.
The bursary scheme is dependent on funds provided by the EFA (Education Funding Agency) which are limited and students are assessed on an individual basis.
Full details of eligibility and application forms for 2020/21 are available below and can be returned to Main Reception along with the required supporting evidence. Original documents will be copied and given back at the time of handing in.
