Bursary Policy

Students in the sixth form are entitled to request additional financial support to aid their learning.   The funds are paid into the students bank accounts and can be used to purchase books, equipment, fund trips or activities undertaken during term time and assist with travel to/from school.

The Redhill Trust Bursary policy has two elements:

  1. Up to £1200 per academic year is available to students who are in care or supporting themselves.
  1. An award may be available to students facing financial barriers to participation to help with education related costs. Applications are invited from students with a total household income of £25,000 or less.

Both elements have additional criteria, please read the the Redhill Trust Bursary Guidelines below.
