16-19 Financial Support

16-19 Bursary Fund 2018-19 


The 16-19 Bursary Fund exists to respond to individual needs and help students continue with and complete their course where they would otherwise be prohibited from doing so on financial grounds.

This document provides full details of the application procedure and guidance notes to help clarify the process for claiming and receiving bursary payments.

Initial applications to the 16-19 Bursary Fund should be returned to the Finance Office no later than Friday 21 September 2018. The school will then confirm in writing whether you meet the criteria required to be awarded payments from this fund.  However, it is recognised that financial circumstances change, and therefore there is no absolute cut off date for applications.

Post 16 Paid Travel Permits

This is a scheme run by North Yorkshire County Council that provides subsidised assistance with transport for eligible students aged 16 years to 19 years (18 years at the start of your course).  Students who meet the eligibility criteria are issued with a travel pass allowing them to make return journeys to and from home to school/college during normal school/college time.  This includes students who wish to travel on the Richmond Schools replacement bus services.
