Working in partnership with Weaver Vale Housing Trust, a number of pupils from our newly appointed Prefect Leadership Team, were today trained on decision making for the Bursary scheme operated by Weaver Vale Housing Trust.

The scheme offers tenants between the ages of 11-24 the opportunity to apply for up to £250 to help them achieve a goal.

Pupils are now part of the committee that make decisions on awards of the bursary.

Each application is judged against the criteria and decisions made based on the evidence submitted.
This is a really worthwhile community project and develops not only the Academy community links but gives our pupils a community responsibility.

This is something we will be increasingly involved with over the coming year.
