16 - 19 Bursary Fund Guidelines for Providing Financial Support to Eligible Students
16 - 19 Bursary Fund

  • This policy exists to provide a framework for supporting our stated aim of “ensuring the happiness of every individual in our community” and to promote a climate which enables all students to flourish, regardless of ability, personal circumstances or special needs, and supports our desired outcomes of developing "strong character".


  • The key purpose of this policy is to ensure that all students in the Sixth Form are able to access the full range of educational opportunities on offer and that social or economic deprivation does not prevent any young person realising their full potential as determined by prior attainment.
  • This fund will be distributed in a manner that provides eligible young people with financial support which directly enables them to access Sixth Form provision in the West Dacorum Partnership for Learning.
  • The school will use appropriate discretion and knowledge of each individual student to ensure that funds are carefully targeted and that "best value" is always realised.
  • Allocation of support will be dependent on eligible students fulfilling specified criteria concerning attendance and success rates.  Details of this criteria is available from the 6th Form Office.
  • The fund will not be used to fund any activity which is not directly linked to the student's education and will certainly not be used to subsidise other social benefits such as child care allowance.

Please see Mrs Bertram in the 6th Form Office for an Application form.
