Bursary Information

Background Information

The Education Funding Agency (EFA) analyse data about Sixth Form students at Shirley High School who may need additional financial support to remain in education. They then award the school a sum of money to be used to support all the students who meet the criteria for an award. The school chooses how the money will be administered. The school has to ensure that money is available to support students who become eligible for bursary at a later date and also to cover discretionary awards.
