16-19 Student Bursary

Please note that all Sixth Form Bursary payments for the remainder of the academic year will be honoured; students will continue to be paid on a monthly basis.


Please be aware that owing to an administration problem at CAT finance, the result of the current coronavirus situation, there has been a slight delay in Bursary payments for April. Payments should be in students’ bank accounts on Friday 24th April. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The CAT finance team has also received the following communication from the Education and Skills Funding Agency which funds the 16-19 Bursary and we would ask students to be on their guard.

ESFA Information: increased fraud risk during coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

Periods of instability, such as during the coronavirus pandemic, bring an increased risk of fraud. Fraudsters will actively exploit these difficult times and will target vulnerable areas for financial gain.

We have been informed some learners and parents have received a letter from ESFA asking for personal learner bank details in relation to the 16 to 19 Bursary Fund. We never ask for personal bank account details. This is a fraudulent letter – please do not respond.
