Sixth Form Bursaries




Sutton Grammar School Sixth Form Bursaries are designed to help students from less well-off families to stay in the Sixth Form

There are two categories of bursary – Vulnerable Bursaries and Discretionary Bursaries

Vulnerable bursaries are worth £1200 per annum but go to a very limited list of students – who are in care, or receive income support in their own name or are disabled and in their own name receive a support allowance and a disability living allowance.

Discretionary bursaries are funded from a limited pot made available to the school and are available to those students in receipt of free school meals or who live in families where the combined taxable income is below £26,400 or in other exceptional circumstances (e.g. hardship caused by sudden changes to family circumstances). Payments from the bursary fund are dependent on zero unauthorised absence from classes and the completion of all work and courses. The money is intended to facilitate the purchase of text books and the other expenses of attending school such as travel and curriculum based trips. 

If you have any questions please contact either the Finance Manager, Head of Sixth Form or Headmaster.
