Bursary Policy

Students in the sixth form are entitled to request additional financial support to aid their learning.   The funds can be used by The Carlton Academy to purchase books, equipment (such as art supplies as an example), fund trips or activities undertaken during term time and we can also assist in travel to/from school with the purchase of a bus pass on behalf of eligible students.

The Redhill Trust Bursary policy has two elements:

  1. £1200 Student Bursary per academic year, available to those students in care, or care leavers.
  1. £900 Student Support Fund, per academic year, available to students who are eligible for free school meals.

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

16-18 Student Bursary Fund (2016-17)

You can find out how to apply for free school meals from here.

If you feel your family is eligible for the Redhill Trust Bursary under either element, please complete the Trust Support Fund Application and email it to  Louise Constable, Sixth Form Administrator: l.constable@theacademycarlton.org.
