Fee Assistance

A bursary

Assistance can be offered to pupils about to start Year 7 or Year 12 or about to enter Lincoln Minster School in Year 9 (ie not current students).  Applications for Bursaries are means tested.  Up to a maximum of 85% can be awarded although this is rare as it is preferred that available funds are distributed more widely to help as many families as possible.  If an award is made, it will be reviewed annually and may be available throughout the pupil’s time the school, dependent on the annual review or any changes in household income. The process is fair and transparent.

A Clergy Bursary

If a parent is a fully incumbent member of the clergy (as recognised by United Learning) it may be that they could qualify for a Clergy Bursary.  The bursary is means tested.  Up to a maximum of 66% can be awarded.  If an award is made, it will be reviewed annually.

How to apply

Application forms for all the above assistance are available from The Registrar, who can be contacted on 01522 551300 or at mandy.stuffins@lincolnminsterschool.co.uk  Please return completed application forms to The Registrar in the first instance.

Generally, Bursaries and Clergy Bursary applications are submitted by December, though late applications can be considered.  The annual review of awards normally takes place around April.

 

Other financial support

Sibling Discount

At Lincoln Minster School the first sibling of an attending pupil receives a 5% discount.  Second and subsequent siblings of attending pupils receive 10%.  When the oldest child leaves the school, the relevant discount for the siblings will adjust accordingly.

A Scholarship

Please see the Scholarships Information leaflet.  This gives details of which scholarships are offered to pupils at entry into Year 3, Year 7 and Year 12 and to new students coming into the school at Year 9.

NB: Discounts are applied to pupil accounts in the following order:  Sibling Discount; Staff Discount; a Scholarship or Choristership; an Assisted Place or Bursary
