Financial support

16-19 Bursary Fund The consultation document refers to a bursary fund of at least £1,200 per year to young people in the following vulnerable groups:

  • Young people aged 16 and 17 year in care
  • Care leaver aged 16.17 and 18 years
  • Young people aged 16, 17 and 18 who are receipt of income support

The 16-19 Bursary Fund is also designed to support the most vulnerable learners for help with meals, transport, books or other course-related costs.

Colleges will have the opportunity to decide eligibility criteria for the scheme and whether to pay bursaries in one lump sum or in instalments. Please note Bursaries may be ‘in kind’ rather than cash payments, e.g. transport subsidies or equipment


Information on financial support is given at interview.  Students studying at the college for 2014-15 will have the opportunity to apply for financial assistance in the summer of 2014.  Help will be availble over the summer holidays for studnets and parents needing advice on financial support.


Parents' evenings

At the start of the new academic year the Principal and Senior Management Team are delighted to welcome all new parents to the college for an evening of information and discussion. The New Parents' Evening will be by invitation and is provisionally scheduled for mid September. It provides an interesting and valuable opportunity to discuss;


-Any feedback or queries parents may have.

-An opportunity to give us feedback about how any of our processes could be improved.

-Feedback about your son or daughter's experience of their first few weeks

Each student works jointly with his or her teachers or Personal Supervisor to regularly monitor progress against target grades for each course being studied. Whilst parents and students can discuss progress with teachers at any stage during the year, there are two Parents' evenings which include the discussion of a written progress report.




Parents' evenings are usually the end of November and again in the final week in March The college will write directly to parents with an invitation to these evenings and updates will be provided on our website closer to the events.


Parents are also encouraged to have direct contact with the college in respect of attendance and we have systems that enable parents access to attendance information by request. 


For all queries please contact the relevant Personal Supervisor through main reception.
