16-19 Bursary and Scholarships
Getting the most out of your A-levels or the IB Diploma requires a significant commitment in terms of time and energy. At Ashcroft we offer financial support to sixth form students who need it, in order you allow you to focus on your studies without the distractions.
Free School Meals are provided to students who received them in Year 11. These students also receive additional support in the form of a hardship grant.
Students will be provided with copies of all textbooks and materials required to complete the A Level and IB courses.
All university preparation programmes, including specialist admissions test preparation and resources, are provided free of charge for all students.
Sixth Form Scholarships
Each autumn, sixth form students are invited to apply for a scholarship worth £500 to enhance their academic studies.
The Ashcroft Academy Sixth Form Scholarship represents an outstanding opportunity for students to pursue their learning and achieve a substantial, tangible learning outcome.
Previously, Ashcroft students have been awarded scholarships in areas to improve their learning and employability.
