Students may be eligible for a discretionary bursary payment if they meet the Sixth Form criteria. Students who fall near the threshold are advised to apply also as thresholds may be adjusted depending on the number of applications.

In addition, Hazel Grove Sixth Form will consider requests for bursary support from any student, regardless of eligibility under the above categories, where that student faces exceptional circumstances during the academic year which impacts on their ability to participate in full time education.
