Student Finance Support


A bursary is available for some students aged 16-19 who may need help with the costs incurred when entering full-time education.  Bursary is money that students can use to pay for things like:

  • clothing, books and other equipment for your course
  • transport and lunch on days you study 

There are two categories:

  • Bursary for students in vulnerable groups
  • Discretionary bursary (awarded is linked to attendance, punctuality, work ethic and behaviour).

For those students who are eligible, payments will be made directly to the student's bank account, which they must hold in their own name.

The amount of funding available to the school is subject to funding and the number of students who apply.

For more information, please contact our Sixth Form team.


The 16-19 Tuition Fund

The 16 to 19 tuition fund is a £96 million fund, ringed fenced for schools, colleges and other 16-19 providers, to support small group tuition for students in English, Mathematics and other courses where learning has been disrupted due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Altrincham College is eligible to receive £2,097 from this fund for small group tuition. Altrincham College will use this funding to support learners who did not achieve Grades 5 or above in GCSE English or Mathematics. Tuition will take place in groups of no more than five students and will be prioritised to support students who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or Mathematics, and students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) or are classified as disadvantaged students.
