Travel Bursary

At The Bedford Sixth Form, we don’t want travel costs to be a barrier stopping you from coming to study with us. That’s why we are offering all our full-time students a travel bursary of up to £450 a year. This bursary is available if you are...

  • live more than three miles (driving distance) from The Bedford Sixth Form
  • have a household income of £30,000 or less
  • are not eligible for financial support for travel from your Local Authority.
