16-18 Student Bursary Fund Policy

The 16-18 Student Bursary Fund is a cash-limited fund to support learners who would benefit from financial support to help overcome specific barriers to participation so they can remain in education. The award is dependent on DFE funds available to the Academy and individual students’ personal circumstances. The bursary is a separate payment from free school meals which you may be eligible for and can apply for directly through your local authority.

There are two elements to the Bursary Fund; Vulnerable Bursary and Discretionary Bursary.  Students must be aged at least 16 and under 19 years of age on 31/08/21 to be considered for an award and must be studying a state funded full-time course at an academy within Redhill Academy Trust. In addition, students must meet the Government’s residency conditions.
