The Bursary can be used to help with the cost of transport, meals, essential books and equipment, trips, print credits, specific clothing, and any other costs incurred as a result of attending college.
College can be financially challenging for some young people. At St John Rigby College we want all our students to enjoy their College experience without this worry. If you or your family would like to discuss any financial concern, please contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01942 214797.

There is an application form for the Student Bursary – this will be available at enrolment and on our website. Alternatively, if you do not obtain a form from either of these two methods, contact email@example.com
If you are applying for the Guaranteed Bursary then you, the student, would need to fill out the form. If applying for the Discretionary Bursary, a parent or carer should complete the form.
We have made the form as straightforward as possible but if you are unsure of anything please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember that we want you to apply and will help you as much as we can.
We will aim to let you know if your application has been approved within 10 working days of receiving your application – however during busy periods, for example, at the start of the academic year, this may take a little longer. If the application is approved, the approval date will always be backdated to the date that we received your application.
We have had many students who initially did not believe that they would be eligible for the bursary, but when they did apply they were approved. If you are not sure if you should apply then please contact email@example.com and someone will contact you to discuss this further.
If you have any other questions relating to the Student Bursary then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org – we want to do everything we can to ensure you are financially supported whilst at St John Rigby College and are more than happy to answer any questions.
