Bursaries and Awards
Gilbert Hannam Education Foundation Bursaries
Up to five bursaries to the value of £750 are funded by the Foundation for students who have demonstrated both outstanding academic progress and have an outstanding attitude to learning at Key Stage 4 (based on GCSE and BTEC performance). The award is made at the end of the first term after entry to the sixth form.
Gilbert Hannam Educational Foundation Travel Bursaries
The Foundation travel bursaries are offered on the provision that travel plans have a significant educational or cultural benefit. Students prepare bids at the start of the academic year for presentation to the Foundation panel who announce the name or names of the successful applications at the annual Gilbert Hannam Day prize giving. The winners receive a grant to support their proposed trip.
