16-19 Bursary Scheme
Each School or College in the UK with a 6th form will receive a bursary allocation from Central Government based upon previous year's Sixth Form roll. This replaces the Education Maintenance Allowance Scheme. Decisions regarding allocation of bursary funding to Sixth Form students is now the responsibility of individual Academies.
Please ensure when applying for Hylands 6th form bursary that only the latest 2015-16 application form is used. Your attention is drawn to the 'Who will be eligible for a bursary in the Hylands School Scheme?' section of the policy, which provides guidance to the application criteria for each level, including applicable household income thresholds. Evidence of current benefit entitlement and entire household income must be included with your applications, in order for the remissions panel to be able to assess your application. Students currently in Year 13 who were entitled to bursary payment in year 12, will need to make a new application and provide appropriate supporting evidence.
