Rainey crest clear 210px wideDear Parent/Guardian


As your son/daughter nears the end of their final term at Rainey Endowed School, I am writing to outline the arrangements regarding applications for Student Finance for further and higher education. All U6 students were issued with the application form and information pack at the beginning of March.


It is very important that County Hall (Ballymena) receives the completed form with all the appropriate evidence by Friday 15 April 2016. This means you can be confident your son/daughter will receive your first payment at the start of term.
