LINCOLN MINSTER SCHOOL

Roots Dating Back to the 12th Century

Our History


Origins of the School

The roots of Lincoln Minster School and its predecessors reach as far back as the 12th Century. The School was born of an amalgamation of long-established and highly esteemed educational institutions (including the Lincoln Cathedral School), with many of the original historic listed buildings still in use by the school today.

Decades of Tradition

Our heritage also brings us centuries of best practice, knowledge and wisdom to build upon. Many traditions practised in our heritage are still in motion today, including our end of term Cathedral Service.

The school also has a long history of educating the Cathedral Choristers and our talented students are still frequently selected to sing with the world-famous choir to this day.

Our Heritage

As well as stunning listed architecture, our heritage also provides the School with a strong foundation within the City and the Lincolnshire community; allowing us to be one of the most notable schools in the county and for centuries being a producer of exceptionally talented and successful alumni. 
Our predecessors include:
  • Cathedral School - Est. Circa 12th Century 
  • St Joseph's Convent School - Est. 1905
