Bursary

The purpose of the 16-19 Bursary Fund is to support young people aged 16-19 in full time education who face financial barriers to participation such as costs of transport, food or equipment. It is made up of two parts, a bursary of £1,200 a year to the most vulnerable young people and a discretionary fund for schools and colleges to distribute.

Vulnerable Group Catergory

  • Young people in care
  • Care Leavers
  • Young people in receipt of income support (or Universal Credit) in their own name
  • Disable young people in receipt of Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance (or Personal Independence Payments) in their own name

For learners not in the above groups the school uses the Free School Meals and Pupil Premium eligibility to give financial support from the 16-19 Discretionary Bursary.

Former student...

George Baker returned to Stoke Park Sixth Form on Wednesday 18th January to share his experiences of his first year studying Sports Journalism at Southampton University.

George discussed with current Year 13 students the emotions associated with leaving home for the first time and the first day fear of not knowing anybody on his course, the difference between Sixth Form study and University study, cheapest supermarkets to buy your shopping in while at University and how to cope with untidy housemates.He also shared his experiences of the many opportunities he has gained through his extra curricular activities and work experience while at Southampton University.

Year 13 students really appreciated the fact that George gave up his time to come and share his experiences with them. Given the fact that he had been exactly where they currently are this time last year it encouraged them to aim high and to keep pursuing their goals.

Many thanks George!


Democracy Challenge

Year 13 students participate in The Democracy Challenge at The Lord Mayor’s Hospitality Suite Thursday 12th October.

The week beginning October 10th was local democracy week within Coventry City Council and the Council scheduled several events that week for young people to give them more of an insight into the work that councillors do within the city.

On Thursday 12th October four Year 13 students, Alex Damjanovic, Anil Kararra, Eloise Cook and Alijcia Olejniczak participated in The Democracy Challenge at the Lord Mayor's Hospitality Suite at Council House. The event had a speed dating format where young people had the opportunity to speak to various different councillors.The aim of the event was that the councillors work for the young people in an attempt to gain their votes.

The students enjoyed the event immensely and discussed issues with councillors which were important to them from educational, youth and community viewpoints.



Andrea Cooper...

On Wednesday 5th November, former Stoke Park student Andrea Cooper explained to Year 12 and Year 13 students that Stoke Park was the first school in the country to allow a student to attend school with the assistance of a guide dog.

As a result of the agreement of former Stoke Park Head Teacher, Mr. Bill Wolger, Andrea, who has severe tunnel vision, with the assistance of her guide dog Cara, successfully completed her GCSEs, AS and A2 examinations.

In July 2012, Andrea graduated from Warwick University with a Politics and Sociology Degree again with the assistance of her trusted guide dog Cara, who has had an enormous impact on Andrea’s life.
