About Lincoln Minster School
Lincoln Minster School was formed in 1996 through a merger of the Cathedral School for Boys, St Joseph’s School for Girls and Stonefield House School. In 2011 St Mary’s Preparatory School merged to form the new Preparatory School of Lincoln Minster School.
The Pre-Preparatory, Preparatory and Senior School sites are all situated in Lincoln’s historic Cathedral Quarter, within a stone’s throw of the Cathedral, Castle, Bailgate and the appropriately named Steep Hill. Many of our buildings are traditional, stone or brick built, with tremendous character. The Pre-Preparatory School is set within a beautiful walled garden while the Preparatory School enjoys a splendid former city farm site a stone’s throw from the Cathedral, extensively redeveloped and opened in September 2014.
In contrast to the traditional, the main building on our Senior School site was purpose built, opened in 2002 by the then Chairman of UCST and former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey. The sweeping, curved building overlooks the main city and enjoys fully equipped science labs, art studios, IT suites and our dedicated Sixth Form Centre.
Our new Music School and Sports Hall building marked an important milestone in Lincoln Minster School’s development, and more is planned. Just as the Cathedral School educated the boy choristers of Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln Minster School continues this tradition.
The whole school comes together regularly in the Cathedral to celebrate the passing of terms, prize givings and special occasions. The sight of the school pupils in their distinctive blazers and staff in their academic gowns processing to the Galilee Porch is a special one; a reminder of how important a sense of tradition is in a modern world and a modern school.
