Sport and Physical Education at Lincoln Minster School are an important and highly cherished part of school life. Through the curriculum, extra-curricular clubs, the house system and representative sport, we aim to foster and promote healthy attitudes to physical activity throughout a student’s school career and, more importantly, for life.
A wide range of activities are made available to boys and girls, from talented individuals who have particular interests, to those whose motivation is more recreational and social.
There is a wide variety of sport on offer enhanced by our new Sports Hall complete with cricket nets. We have use of some excellent facilities in close proximity to the school, including the brand new all-weather hockey pitch at Lindum Sports Ground.
Football, cricket, rugby and squash facilities are also extensively used by the school at the sports ground.
In addition, we have our own mini AstroTurf at the Pre-Prep, eight all-weather tennis courts at the Eastgate Tennis Club, and outdoor netball courts on all three school sites. We also make ever-increasing use of sailing facilities on the outskirts of Lincoln.
The major team games are Rugby, Hockey, Football, Cricket and Athletics for boys and Hockey, Netball, Rounders, and Athletics for girls.
We also have school teams in rugby sevens, cross country, squash, Badminton, Tennis, girls’ football and cricket and cheerleading.
Outdoor pursuit activities such as climbing, walking, cycling and sailing can be done during lesson times, clubs or through the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
There is an established and comprehensive fixture list with matches against local state schools as well as independent schools from Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties. Sports tours both in Britain and abroad are always a great experience and prove very popular.
GCSE Physical Education is a popular option for Year 10/11 pupils and each year there is a healthy take-up at A-level.
