Sixth Form Bursaries

Sixth Form Bursaries

All Sixth Form awards offered by Bury Grammar School are currently for a maximum of 50% of fees.

Bursary assistance available will be dependent both on financial need and academic achievement.

An independent company works with us to assess the family finances. If you would like additional information regarding bursaries for entry into Year 12 in September 2018 please contact the Bursar's Office on 0161 696 8600 (3).

Sixth form awards are normally offered for a two-year period, i.e. covering the Lower and Upper Sixth years.

 Current Pupils

Pupils who have already been studying at Bury Grammar School for at least two years, without any bursary funding, may be eligible for bursary assistance to enable them to continue their studies in the Sixth Form.

Application should be made by completing a Sixth Form Award application form, which can either be downloaded or obtained from the Bursar’s Office.

The Heads and the Bursar will take into account a number of factors when considering an offer of a Sixth Form bursary.

In addition to academic performance, the Heads are likely to consider the potential of each pupil and their contribution via participation in the extra-curricular activities offered by the School.

Funds for bursaries are limited and early application is advisable.

The closing date for Sixth Form Bursary applications for entry in September 2019 is 29 March 2019, but later applications may be considered up to the start of the academic year in September 2019, dependent on the availability of funding and, in the past we have offered Sixth Form bursaries after the publication of the GCSE results.

If you wish to make an application after 29 March 2019, please telephone the Bursar’s Office first to check the position with regard to availability of funding.

 External Candidates

Sixth Form bursary applications are welcomed from parents of prospective pupils who have been educated to GCSE level elsewhere, provided they meet the academic criteria for entry into the Bury Grammar School Sixth Form.

Applicants will need to submit a Sixth Form bursary application form in the same way as indicated above for current pupils.

For more information with regard to academic criteria, please visit the relevant School website or contact the Registrar.
