This recording of a Q&A session with Student Services Manager, Helen Haslam, gives an overview of the support available to Selby College students (current and prospective) with transport, bursaries, applications and more:

Bursary at Selby College

For some students aged 16-18 from households with a gross income of less than £27,500 per annum, your son or daughter will be eligible for a Bursary, which means they will be able to travel to college free of charge. The Bursary also provides assistance with meals, necessary equipment and trips.

To make things easier and quicker for you to apply, we have an online bursary application system called Pay My Student which is simple to use. Download the guide on how to apply using Pay My Student and follow the instructions to submit your application. 

For more details of the College Bursary, please contact Student Services Tel 01757 211040 or email info@selby.ac.uk.

Family Savings Regarding Bus Transport 

We fully appreciate the cost of transport is expensive and have therefore agreed to charge for only one ticket, where families have two or more siblings attending full-time Further Education at Selby College.

If you have any queries or special requests or are unsure how your son or daughter would be able to access Selby College, please do not hesitate to contact our Student Services Department, who can discuss the range of options Tel 01757 211040 or email info@selby.ac.uk.

Wellbeing at Selby College 

At Selby College, the wellbeing of our students and staff is one of our biggest priorities. As part of our commitment to wellbeing, we aim to provide an environment that is both supportive and engaging which delivers tools and strategies that can improve wellbeing.

How does the College do this?

The College offers a confidential counselling service which provides a space for students and staff to discuss their concerns non judgementally. As part of this, the College’s counsellor Lorraine Fisher will work with you to find solutions to issues or simply offer a service for you to come and talk each week.

We are also working with a team of Councillors from Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust to expand our existing mental health and emotional wellbeing service.

Who is eligible for the service?

The service is free and is available to all students and members of staff. The length of time someone can access support is open ended and is agreed with the counsellor and student.

How do I access the service?

More information about the service can be found in the wellbeing room on Google Classroom or via your General Support Tutor (GST).
