19+ Financial aid

The 19+ Learner Support Fund is a discretionary fund for students aged 19 by 31 August whose course is funded by the ESFA (Education & Skills Funding Agency). Eligibility is assessed using the student’s own income. You can learn about the Adult Learner Loan E-Fund and how to apply for it if you are eligible here.

Students in Classroom



The 16-19 bursary fund is for students from low-income families to help with essential course-related costs, such as equipment and trips. This may also include meals and/or a contribution towards travel. This fund is only for those students ages 16-19. Priorities are given to households with an income under £30,000 and then to those between £30,001 and £40,000.


Trust Fund

The John Leggott College Student Trust Fund was set up in memory of a former JLC Governor, Bill Martin, who was a keen advocate of social mobility. Established in 1995, the fund supports the advancement of education of present or former full-time students of John Leggott College, by granting financial assistance to them.

The fund can help with course material costs, such as art or textiles supplies, IT equipment, calculators. Previous applicants have successfully received grants for assistance with travel costs to university open days, college trips and visits, additional courses/summer schools, music lessons and equipment to name but a few. This can be either for your main academic subjects or extra-curricular activities/enrichments.

This will be sent to the Clerk to the Trustees who will be in contact to let you know if your application has been successful.
