Sixth Form

Students are able to apply for financial assistance if they fall into any of the below categories:


Student Bursary Applications - Priority 1

If a student supports themselves financially, are in care or are a care leaver, then they can apply for significant financial support as a 'priority 1' application for vulnerable students;

Vulnerable Student Support means students who are defined as:                                                        

  • 16-19 year olds in care/care leavers
  • 16-19 in receipt of Income Support or Universal Credit in their own name
  • 16-19 disabled in receipt of Employment Support Allowance, Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payments in their own name

Student Bursary Applications - Priority 2 and 3

If students fall into one of the following categories, they may be eligible for financial support;

Priority 2: Students who received free school meals during their year 11 at school or whose total annual household income (including tax credits and benefits) is below the free school meals threshold of £16,190.

Priority 3: Students who are not already classified as Priority 1 or 2 whose household income is between £16,190 and £25,000. 


Pudsey Grammar School has a limited allowance for this bursary so the amount available to each student varies each year. Applications can be made at any time of the year, as personal circumstances change.

Payments of the bursary are conditional on students meeting the following conditions in relation to their standards of attendance and behaviour:

  • Attendance above 90% (subject to exceptional circumstances)
  • Adherence to the sixth form code of conduct

All students are required to sign a declaration confirming that they agree to these conditions.

  • Students will have their cashless catering accounts credited to purchase food/beverages
  • Text books – We will order any textbooks required through school, please inform school of any you need
  • Stationery equipment for school, e.g. pens, notebooks, calculator, art materials
