Sixth Form Student Bursary

Free School Meals and Additional Post-16 Bursary

The post-16 bursary is a small fund that the school holds to support parents with the expenses related to educating a child in the Sixth Form. We are confident that the fund will offer a greater level of support for those students who receive Free School Meals.

If you claim and qualify for Free School Meals at Leventhorpe and your child is in the Sixth Form, further funding to pay for any school-related expenses (trips, transport, uniform, equipment, etc.). may be available on application.  Each application will be dependent upon criteria. 

If you do not claim Free School Meals for your child but your family income is below £25,000 before tax, then you may still qualify for a lower bursary, also available on application.

If you feel you might be eligible the following links will be helpful:
