16 to 19 Bursary

The 16-19 Bursary Fund helps 16 to 19-year-olds continue in education, where they might otherwise struggle for financial reasons. In September 2023, pupils can apply to Heathcote School and Science College for the 16-19 Bursary Fund. 

The most in need will be eligible for a bursary of £1200 a year. This includes young people in care, care leavers, young people receiving income support and disabled young people receiving both Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance. Young people eligible for income support will include some teenage parents, young people estranged from their families, and those whose parents have died. 

Other pupils facing financial difficulties may also be able to claim a bursary to help with costs for transport, food, equipment or other course-related costs.
