Sixth Form Prospectus

"Students receive excellent guidance when applying to university or seeking employment and Sixth Formers arrange their own work experience."

"Sixth Form students make a valuable contribution to the smooth running of the school."

Ofsted

In the Sixth Form our students receive high standards of teaching enriched by strong Islamic values and excellent pastoral care. We encourage students to take on positions of leadership and responsibility in which they act as role models for the rest of the school.

We work closely with Careers advisors to raise awareness of possible career paths. Working with universities and other higher education institutions we aim for a smooth progression for those students wishing to enter further education.

16 - 19 Bursary

A key priority for the Government is to close the gap in attainment between those from poorer and more affluent backgrounds, and to ensure every young person participates in and benefits from a place in 16 to 19 education or training.

Academies are free to determine the assessment criteria for eligibility for discretionary bursaries and the frequency of and conditions for payments for all awards; subject to the requirements of the Equality Act 2010. To be eligible to receive a 16-19 Bursary academic year, the student must be aged 16 or over and under 19 on 31 August each school year. Where a student turns 19 during their programme of study, they can continue to be supported to the end of the academic year in which they turn 19, or to the end of the programme of study, whichever is sooner.

The amount of funding available for each school to distribute through the bursary funding is determined by the Government.

Subject to funding levels Feversham aims to support all of its students. At the start of each term every student in year 12 and 13 will receive a basic needs bursary at a level commensurate with the allocation of funds for that academic year. It is the intention at Feversham College that students in receipt of free school meals will receive an additional amount to help with their studies.
