Thomas Gainsborough Sixth Form is easily accessible, with short travel time from all villages and towns between Halstead, Haverhill, Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket, Sudbury, Ipswich, Hadleigh and Colchester.

Please be aware that all post-16 transport is payable, however low income families may be eligible for a bursary payment to help with the cost. Unfortunatly our Sixth Form bursary payments are generally not issued before October and therefore cannot fund a bus pass in advance of the Autumn term. 


Significant Sixth Form Busaries, up to £1,200, are available to many students and can be used to subsidise transport costs, provide books and equipment, pay for field trips and other course-related costs and contribute to the costs of attending University interviews and open days.
