One of the enormous pleasures of providing continuous education from 2 to 18 years is that we see children develop from inquisitive, open-minded toddlers to confident, bright young adults within the Lincoln Minster School community.
Scholarships are available for entry into certain year groups each year:
Any child currently in Year 2 is invited to apply for a Year 3 scholarship place. All of LMS Year 2 children automatically take part in a special - and fun - Scholarships Day in February each year, with a view to joining Year 3 in September. External applicants are encouraged and very welcome. If your child would like to be a part of this, please contact the Pre-Preparatory School on 01522 524622.
...and high levels of achievement
Each year a limited number of scholarships are awarded to Senior School pupils who are capable of extremely high levels of achievement and who we believe will make a significant contribution to our school community.
Assessments for places in Years 7, 9 and 12 generally take place in January, for entry in September. January's Scholarship Week will take place w/c 13 January 2014, and the deadline for applications is 18 December 2013.
Exceptional students who are not in a position to apply at this time will be considered at any pont in the year.
Selection for scholarships is usually made on the basis of either written examinations, record of achievement, interview or audition, depending on the subject areas. We award the following:
- Academic scholarships
- Art scholarships
- Choral scholarships
- Music scholarships
- Sports scholarships
You can download a scholarship application form here. Alternatively, for further details of these valuable opportunities and how to apply, contact our Registrar, Mandy Stuffins on 01522 551300.
Sons and daughters of the clergy may also be eligible for a bursary, and we do offer a discount for siblings attending Lincoln Minster School.

If further assistance with fees is required, there are other options and we will be pleased to discuss these with you. We have good relationships with a number of organisations who have supported our students, some of which are listed below:
The Ouseley Trust supports the choral liturgy of the Church of England by assisting with the fees of choristers at choir schools. In 25 years, it has distributed more than £2.25 million to over 450 cathedrals, colleges and churches.
Future Talent is a very special charity that provides the critical support to enable exceptional musical talent to flourish. We find, fund, nurture and monitor gifted musicians aged between 5 and 18 whose current financial circumstances are preventing them from fulfilling their musical potential. The funding and opportunities we provide enable young people from across the UK to aim high and make their musical dreams a reality.
Royal National Children's Foundation (formerly the Royal Wanstead Children's Foundation and the Joint Educational Trust) helps vulnerable children and young people in Britain whose circumstances are seriously prejudicial to their normal development and where no other care is available. The Charity helps by providing grants and boarding school places for children aged 7 - 18 who have suffered trauma, tragedy or neglect in their young lives.
