Free School Meals post-16
Any student in receipt of Free School Meals in Year 11 is still entitled to receive them in the Sixth Form. The school will provide any student entitled to Free School Meals with £2.41 of credit on the school cashless payment system on a daily basis.
To apply for this entitlement, please click the link below and apply directly through Kent County Council’s (KCC) website.
Apply for Free School Meals
Free School Meals do not affect a bursary any student receives, so we would automatically advise any student applying for the bursary (this does not apply to those entitled solely to the discretionary Football Academy travelling bursary) to apply for Free School Meals in addition to the bursary.
Educational material (textbooks)
In addition to the bursary, the school will always endeavour to pay for educational textbooks required for courses.
These will be paid for directly out of the bursary funds, before individual bursaries are calculated and awarded. This may mean that the individual bursaries for Levels 2A, 2B and 2C may be less than the published figure in this policy; we will always let students know if this is the case.
