16-19 Financial Support

The Richmond School 16-19 Bursary Fund exists to help students complete their course where they would otherwise be prohibited from doing so on financial grounds.

Vulnerable Learners may receive a bursary of £1,200 per year, which is available to students who are in care, care leavers, students in receipt of income support or disabled students in receipt of both Universal Credit and Personal Independence Payment.

Students from households on incomes of less than £35,000, may still receive a Discretionary Bursary to provide assistance with transport and/or essential education-related costs, based on their actual financial need.

To apply for Sixth Form Financial Assistance please complete the online application process here and provide any supporting evidence by mid September.

The exact closing date for applications will be confirmed to students and parents/ carers directly by email at the start of the academic year.  This will allow the school to assess the overall level of demand and make discretionary grants on a consistent and fair basis.   However, it is recognised that financial circumstances can change and therefore there is no absolute cut-off date for applications.

A copy of the Sixth Form Financial Assistance 2023-24 guidance notes and Student Declaration are available to download at the bottom of the page.
