Welcome To Welshpool High School Sixth Form

Welshpool High School are proud to welcome the Head Student team for 2021. Mr Whitley, Head of Sixth Form, is looking forward to the work that the team will do to set high standards, to encourage high expectations and to be excellent role models for KS4 and KS3.

We have a thriving Sixth Form here at Welshpool High School. Our Annual Open Evening is held in October and during this evening we open the school to prospective Sixth Form pupils. Visitors are able to speak to staff and students about the courses on offer and to view the facilities we have.

Please contact Mr Whitley at the school if you are interested in finding out more about what our Sixth Form can offer you. Information about Student Finance can be accessed via the links on this page. View our Sixth Form Prospectus by clicking the link below:

What is EMA?

Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) is a weekly payment of £30 to help 16-18 year olds with the costs of further education. Payments are made every 2 weeks as long as you meet your school or college’s attendance, performance and behaviour requirements.

You could get EMA if all the following apply to you:

  • you live in Wales (you do not have to study in Wales)
  • you will be aged between 16–18 on 31 August 2019.
  • you attend an eligible school or college in the UK. This must be full time at school or college, for at least 12 hours per week, and studying an eligible course
  • your household income is £20,817 or less or your household income is £23,077 or less and there are other young people in your household who qualify for Child Benefit. Your parents/guardians will need to give details of their income as part of your application for EMA

Please see the attached document.  It explains who is eligible for Education Maintenance Allowance for September 2021.  Students will be able to make their applications from April 2021 onwards.
