The Government introduced a Post 16 Bursary Scheme to enable schools and colleges to provide some financial support where a student’s financial circumstances are a barrier to their learning.

Cedars Martin Sixth Form has joined together with other sixth forms in Leicestershire to provide the Leicestershire Sixth Form Bursary Scheme. We plan to offer our 16-19 bursary again in 2020 (subject to confirmation of funding). This help is available to students who want to study at Cedars Martin. A guaranteed bursary is available to young people who are:

  • Young people in care and care leavers
  • Young people in receipt of income support
  • Young people on free school meals
  • Disabled young people in receipt of both Employment

Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance.

Further information on the 16-19 bursary is available through the admissions process.
