Last year 3 year 13 students won the Swanlea Sixth Form Governors Bursary and this year, they have all completed their first year of university!
Last year’s students have benefited greatly from the bursary. Shahara Akter Hussain is now studying Dentistry at Kings College, London, Thakmin Nessa is studying Religion, Philosophy and Ethics and King’s College, London and Zakariya Abdullahi is studying Law with Economics and SOAS.
The Swanlea Sixth Form Governors Bursary was introduced in 2017 and is awarded annually to 3 successful year 13 students who are going to university, have met their target grades and have achieved 94% and over in attendance and punctuality.
The bursaries are worth £7500 for a three-year university course (£2500 per year).
At Swanlea we understand that the high cost of a university degree can be a financial burden on our students and their families and so the governors created the Swanlea Sixth Form Governors Bursary.
Applications are coming in across year 13 for this year’s Bursary. We wish all our students the best of luck when applying.
