16-19 Bursary

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. The bursary fund is intended to help students with their actual costs of participating, and bursary decisions are based on students’ individual circumstances and their actual financial need.

Funding is provided by the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and administered by the School. CAST carries out a financial assessment of each applicant and administers bursaries in line with the ESFA’s Bursary Fund Guide and as set out in the attached policy.
