Young people who require financial support to help them continue in education post 16 can apply to their school for the 16-19 Bursary Fund. Waterfront UTC 6th Form has been allocated a very modest amount of money to distribute to students in genuine need of financial assistance.
If your son or daughter successfully applied for this funding in 2017/2018, they will need to submit a new application for the coming academic year.
In addition, Waterfront UTC Sixth Form would like to invite Year 11 students who start Year 12 in September, who believe they are eligible for the financial assistance to apply. The application form will be released via the school website at the end of this current Academic year with appropriate guidelines.
All applicants must provide evidence of their household income as part of the application process. We currently accept P60, Income Support/University Credit (Award Letter), Full Tax Credit Award. Self-Employee earnings (Official Tax return), other benefits/pension (Award Letter) or recent wage slips.
Students with eligibility 2 and 3 above will be able to claim for Bursary Assistance which can support transport costs, course related books and stationary, meals whilst at school and any other essential course related costs including school trips.
You may wish to seek additional guidance from the Government website www.gov.uk/16-to-19-education-financial-support-for-students.
The school will be open during the summer break if you wish to hand in an application or raise any queries regarding the Bursary Scheme.
