Discretionary Bursary Fund
The Creative and Media Studio School also has a Discretionary Bursary Fund. The criteria for this fund is set by us.
How can this help me?
This fund is for Students who are facing genuine financial barriers to participating in education. Its aim is to help with essentials and is not a cash payment, but a payment in kind for particular items needed. Typical ways this fund has been used by the Studio School includes
- Bus passes to and from College, where the distance travelled justifies this
- Specialist course equipment
- Costs incurred for placements and business engagement opportunities
- Transports and fees for course events/trips/university visits
- Transports and fees for enrichment events offered, or arranged, by the Studio School which could benefit the student’s progression routes
As a Studio School we have a duty to ensure all funds are awarded fairly to students most in need, therefore, all applications cannot be guaranteed. We ask that all students are:
- Are under 19 years at the start of the year the bursary is needed for
- Have at least 90 % attendance
- Are meeting expectations for good behaviour and progress
- Are in receipt of Free School Meals
Students who received Free School Meals do not automatically receive them at Post 16. Applications to the Local Authority must be made by the parents.

To apply for FSM, please contact Kirklees Local Authority on 01484 221928, stating that your child is on roll at the Creative and Media Studio School at Netherhall Learning Campus and you would like to discuss FSM with the relevant department.
