Buxton Community School

16-19 Bursary Fund 2019/20

Applications are open for eligible students to apply for the 16-19 Bursary Funding.


The 16-19 Bursary Fund targets support towards the most financially disadvantaged 16 to 19-year olds - those who most need help with the costs of staying on at school.

Buxton Community School will determine the eligibility criteria for discretionary bursaries, and the frequency of and conditions for payments for all awards. The 16-19 Bursary will only be awarded to a student that is eligible and facing genuine financial barriers to participating.


To be eligible for the 16-19 Bursary Fund in the 2019- 2020 academic year, the student must be aged 16 or over and under 19 on 31st August 2019.

Students must also satisfy the residency criteria set out in the *EFA Funding Guidance. (A person on 1 September who is settled in the UK and has been ordinarily resident in the UK and Islands for the three years preceding the 1 September.) If you are in any doubt, please speak to Mrs Jayne McMillan, Head of School Business and Resources on 01298 212156.

Please go the area 'Sixth Form' on our website for full details and an application form.

Closing date for completed applications and evidence is Friday 13th September 2019.
