A scheme operates whereby the Department of Education allocates a limited fund to assist necessitous students each year. For the purpose of the scheme, a necessitous pupil is a pupil from a home where genuine hardship exists because of unemployment, prolonged illness of parent, large family with inadequate means, a single parent family or other circumstances which would connote a similar degree of domestic financial hardship.

If you think you qualify for the scheme and would like to apply please keep all receipts for books purchased and complete the application form below.  You must return the form and receipts directly to the school- the closing date for receipt of applications is Friday, 1 September 2017 – no late applications will be accepted.  Please note the grant is only a partial contribution towards the cost of the books and does not cover the full cost of books purchased.
