Financial Support

Families that are experiencing financial hardship can request financial support to contribute to school related costs e.g. trips, uniform, food, help with the cost of materials in subjects like Design and Art etc.
Financial support is available to all students for whom the school receives Pupil Premium.
These students will belong to one of the following categories:

  1. To have been in receipt of free school meals at any time over the last 6 years (even if they are currently not entitled). A leaflet on how to apply for a free school meal is available from School Reception or on our website here.
  2. Be a Child Looked After (CLA).
  3. Have parents who work in the services.

This is how we work out the subsidy that you will be entitled to:
For mandatory curriculum related trips the subsidy is 100%.
For optional curriculum related trips up to £100, the subsidy is 50%
For other trips, the subsidy is 25% e.g. Spanish trip, Ski trip.

If you would like to apply for financial support, once you know the details of the support you require, please complete this form: Financial Hardship Support Application Form.

You can either complete it online and email it to or in hardcopy and return to the Finance Office.

Forms are also available in school from the School Reception or Finance Office.
