TRAVEL & DISCOUNTS


It's important to check the cost and time your child will spend travelling.

BURSARIES


The Education Funding Agency provides two types of 16–19 bursaries, based on your financial circumstances: a Discretionary Student Bursary and an Additional Bursary. These bursaries can help you with the cost of books, travel and other resources your child needs throughout the academic year. We can't guarantee that all of your costs will be covered.

You'll only be able to apply for a bursary after your child has enrolled with us.

You can find more information about bursaries on our Fees & Funding page.

ADVANCED LEARNER LOANS


If your child is aged 19+ and is starting a Level 4 course with us, they might qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan. These loans are to help your child pay for their course.

It is easy to apply; your household income is not considered and there is no credit check. Your child will not have to pay anything back until their income is over £27,295 a year.

You can find more information about Advanced Learner Loans on our Fees & Funding page.

FRA APPLICANT DAYS


We're excited to hold a special event for all our offer holders in July 2022. We're planning a fun afternoon for our potential students to meet their classmates, make new friends and feel less nervous about starting in September.

Please keep an eye out for more details soon!

PARENT TO PRINCIPAL EVENT


In July 2022, our Principal, Lee Lucas, will be hosting an exclusive online information evening. You'll be able to find out more about all our courses and ask any questions.

We'll share more information close to the event.
