Bursaries

Financial Assistance for Sixth Formers

Students with a household income of less than £25000 are eligible to apply for financial assistance to help cover their expenses whilst in sixth form. This is not a weekly payment; it is a reimbursement, therefore you will need to provide receipts. Allerton Grange has a limited allowance for this bursary, so the amount available to each student varies each year.

You will also need to supply documentation to prove your claim and prove that you are entitled to residency in the UK. Forms A and B are available from the Sixth Form office. Once all the money allocated to the school has been distributed there may be no more money, so we recommend early application for these funds.
