Support for Students

At St Leonard’s Sixth Form we want to ensure no student is disadvantaged financially from fully engaging in learning, super-curricular reading and pre-university opportunities.  Students with a household income of £40,000 may be eligible for a bursary, paid directly into their bank account, which can be used to cover essential expenses such as school clothing, books, equipment, travel, lunch money  or a laptop. To apply for a bursary please complete the application form and return to sixthformadmissions@st-leonards.durham.sch.uk
