16-19 Bursary Fund


Dear Parent / Carer

The 16-19 Bursary Fund, although common to all Post-16 providers, is to be delivered by the school itself and all institutions have been given guidelines on how the bursary allocation can be distributed to students. Further details of these guidelines can be found on the YPLA website, www.ypla.gov.uk

The new 16-19 Bursary for QE is intended to support the most vulnerable students in Post-16 education. In order to access this fund, a student must be on a full-time programme of study and fulfil one of the 4 categories below:

1. Children in care.

2. Care Leavers.

3. Young people in receipt of income support.

4. Disabled young people in receipt of Disability Living Allowance and Employment Support Allowance.

Students who fulfil one or more of the above categories will need to complete the application form and provide evidence to support their application. These should then be passed to Alison Barnett by the end of 30th September:

Students moving into Year 13 and who have been in receipt of the bursary will be required to re-apply using the application form, and send it to Alison Barnett by 30th September.The 16-19 Bursary Application Form and Questions and Answers can be found at the bottom of the page on the QE website, and downloaded. Please complete the form and send it into the Sixth Form Office with the relevant evidence by 30th September .

Yours Sincerely
