Bursaries

How do I apply for bursary support?

You can apply for bursary support by completing the form on the “bursary” section of the site. You will also need to submit proof of your trip to this form, this could be a booking reference for a venue or proof of travel.

Can I apply for more than one bursary?

You can apply for a bursary to support different trips and different age groups, however we can’t guarantee that we can help cover the costs for all the trips, but we’ll try to help as much as we can.

Can the bursary be used for trips abroad?

No, the bursary can only be used for trips in the UK.

Can I apply if we have less than 30 pupils?

We have set the 30-pupil minimum as a way of ensuring we can reach as many pupils as possible, however we do appreciate that there are occurrences where it is not possible to gather 30 pupils.

Please do apply for a bursary as we consider each application on a case-by-case basis. Add some detail about who you are and why you are applying for a small group, and we will make sure to consider your application on your EDI criteria instead of your group size.

How are bursaries allocated?

The Great British School Trip bursaries are available to all schools but they are prioritised by EDI criteria such as the percentage of your pupils who are eligible for free school meals. However, we will try our very best to help as many schools as possible. 

What is the application process?

How do I know if my bursary application was accepted?

We will be in touch via email within 10 working days to let you know if you have been successful. 

Why was my bursary application rejected?

Due to a high demand for bursary funding, we are not able to offer it to all schools. We will be in touch in the future about the next year of the programme.

How do I claim my bursary funds?

Head to the ‘My Account’ section of The Great British School Trip website. Your bursary status will have changed to ‘Accepted’ and a ‘Send Receipts’ button will have appeared. Click this button and follow the on-screen instructions.
