In March 2011, the Government announced a new 16-19 Bursary Fund scheme to provide financial assistance to those young people who face a financial barrier to continuing in education or training post-16. The scheme has been put in place as a partial replacement for the Education Maintenance Allowance, which closed to new applicants on 1 January 2011.
The 16-19 Bursary Fund has been allocated by the Education Funding Agency (EFA), the funding agency for 16-19 education and training.
Denefield School is committed to ensuring the Fund is used to support financially disadvantaged young people taking up or continuing in their education or training post-16 and achieving their learning aim(s).
The named contact at Denefield School for all 16-19 Bursary support/enquiries is Mr Bradley EBY@denefield.org.uk
Forms for financial assistance can be obtained from Miss Critchley in the Sixth Form office or see to the right of this page.
