Welcome to Bingley Grammar School
A very warm welcome to Bingley Grammar School.
I hope our website will give you an insight into the quality of care and education you can expect for your son or daughter at the school, along with the range of exciting opportunities and experiences that are on offer to enable our students to develop into confident young adults.
At Bingley Grammar, we seek to develop the skills, talents and interests of all our students as individuals. No young person learns effectively unless he or she feels safe, secure and happy. Bingley Grammar School is a caring and supportive school and we
try to address the individual needs of every student through a comprehensive, flexible pastoral system. As such, we work together to develop self-respect, self-discipline and self-understanding.
We look forward to our future but we value our past and particularly our traditions, believing they provide a solid and stable foundation for the whole school. Our well-established house system at the heart of the school helps to foster a strong sense of belonging.
We, as a school, are extremely proud of all our students and we look forward to welcoming you and your family to our school.

16-19 Bursary Fund and Free School Meals
The 16-19 Bursary Fund and Free School Meals scheme can provide financial support to help some students in their learning. Schools are responsible for awarding bursaries to students, deciding the amounts, dates of payments and setting conditions that students should meet in order to receive payments.
Please note that the information below may be subject to change following guidance from the Education and Funding Agency. Any changes will be updated on our website.
The Bursary scheme is made up of two parts:
1. A payment of £1,200 to a small group of the most vulnerable students who fall into one of the following categories:
- Young people who are, or who have recently been, looked after children in the care of the Local Authority or foster parents
- Young people who receive Income Support or Universal Credit in their own name
- Disabled young people in receipt of both Employment Support Allowance and either Disability Living Allowance or Personal Independence Payment in their own name.
2. Half-termly discretionary payments awarded to students with successful applications. Applications will only be successful if students are in receipt of free school meals OR if total household assessed income is £21,000 or below, including Tax Credits, and the student provides sufficient indication of how the funds are to be spent.
To qualify for Free School Meals parents/carers should be in receipt of one or more of the following:
- Income Support
- Income Based Jobseekers Allowance
- Income Related Employment and Support Allowance
- Child Tax Credit with an annual income of less than £16,190, provided they are not receiving Working Tax Credit
