Fairfax Sixth Form

Financial Support

At Fairfax, we are committed to closing the attainment gap between pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and those from more affluent backgrounds, and to ensure that every young person has the opportunity to participate in and benefit from a place in 16-19 education and training.

16-19 Bursary Fund

The 16 to 19 Bursary Fund provides financial support to help students overcome the specific financial barriers to participation they face so they can remain in education.

There are 2 types of 16 to 19 bursaries:

  • bursaries for defined vulnerable groups
  • discretionary bursaries which institutions award using policies they set, in line with these funding rules. 

The current policy can be found here: 16-19 Bursary Policy 2021-22

The Bursary application is only available at the start of each academic year and is awarded termly to successful applicants. 
The next application will be in September 2022. 
From September 2022, students awarded the bursary will be able to purchase, from the school, goods and services to support their education.
