Sixth Form Bursary

At West Kirby Grammar School we are always keen to support students who may struggle financially. We do not want their progress to suffer due to monetary constraints. Students are encouraged to apply for a bursary. The monthly payments into the student’s own bank account can be used for travel fares, books and trips. Students experiencing unexpected hardship can apply for a one off payment.

There are two levels of Bursary payment dependent upon family circumstance. Full details can be downloaded in our Policies section and application forms are available. For further information, please contact Mrs K Cliffe, Assistant Head (Pastoral) in school.

Exceptional Circumstances

In the current economic climate, the fund can also help with hardship needs arising from a sudden change in circumstances such as redundancy or a sudden drop in household income. Students who apply with exceptional circumstances will be viewed sympathetically where financial need can be evidenced. In this situation, a covering letter should be included, outlining the circumstances and providing supporting evidence.

If you need any additional information or help completing the application form, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr Clarke (Acting Headteacher) or Mrs Cliffe (Assistant Headteacher).
