Art Department

Progressive, contemporary, exciting and stimulating

At Lincoln Minster School we aim to encourage and inspire students from Early Years through to Sixth Form with a range of disciplines including drawing and painting, sculpture, textiles, photography, graphic design, model making and animation.

"I am delighted that I chose to send my daughter to Lincoln Minster School as the nature, depth and quality of the artwork she is undertaking far exceeds that of her friends in her previous school, and she absolutely loves Life Drawing."

The Art Department is open plan and students of all ages are encouraged to work together, giving both staff and students the freedom to be totally creative and uninhibited.

We aim to meet the individual creative needs of all of our students, allowing them to mature artistically. This process is enhanced by individual tutorials, extra-curricular activities and study trips.

We have a highly specialist team of staff who are not only passionate about the subject but also themselves practising artists.

We are respected as a department both locally and nationally, attaining excellent results at GCSE and A level. During a recent HMC inspection the department was highly complimented upon the quality of work and high standards attained.

This year’s results once again reflect these high standards with 100% of students attaining an A-C grade at AS in Art. Consequently, many students who choose to study Art, Graphics and Photography move directly to degree courses. Never has a student been unsuccessful in achieving a place in Higher Education – many with unconditional offers. In short they leave school with skills akin to those acquired on Art Foundation courses.

"We have been impressed by the quality and quantity of the work presented for the portfolio interview."
