16+ Bursary

The 16+ Bursary Fund provides financial help for young people aged 16 to 19 who face barriers to staying in education. It is available to all 16-19 year olds studying in school/academy sixth forms, college and training providers in England. There are two types of bursary available:

(1) Bursaries of £1200 a year for the most vulnerable young people; and

(2) Discretionary bursaries based on individual need, such as help with the costs of travel or equipment

Please contact the school to see if your son is eligible

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
