I would like to know how many bursaries or scholarships, partial or full (not including financial support for school trips), have been awarded for key stage 3, 4 and 5 students at Jersey College for Girls.
Could you also supply information as to whether any of these bursaries have been granted to students whose household income exceeds the stated £48,000 per year 'cut off point' for bursaries, and, if so, how many of these have been awarded in the last 5 years, as well as reasons for these bursaries being granted if possible; and
How every bursary (including those awarded to students whose household income was UNDER £48,000) was funded (e.g. through the JCG foundation, or through tax subsidies), which type of bursary was awarded and how much money the funding amounted to in total.
A and C
