Great Reasons to Choose Lincoln Minster School
Choosing the right school can be one of the most difficult decisions you can make. Here are some of our top reasons why we could be the right school for you.
Our small class sizes allow each pupil to have a more bespoke and attentive learning experience. In addition, all Senior pupils are provided with an iPad to support their learning. Our Aspire programme is also designed to further support our pupils in meeting and exceeding their academic development aspirations.
From Golf to Cubs, and Debating to Choir, we have a wide range of co-curricular events, clubs and activities. These are built into the school timetable and are designed to enhance our pupils' development, either academically, creatively, physically and/or socially. It's vital our pupils are fulfilled, can discover new passions, and enjoy their time at school.
Our Preparatory school was recently announced as a Finalist in the national Independent Schools of the Year Awards (2022 and 2023) for Student Wellbeing. Our pastoral curriculum includes visits from external speakers, involvement in national anti-bullying and mental health campaigns as well as the opportunity to join and lead our pupil social action and wellbeing groups.

We received the Environmental Champions Award at the Lincolnshire Education Awards 2022 and were shortlisted in the national Independent Schools of the Year Awards (2021) for Community Outreach.

Our school is set within the idyllic, historic quarter of the city, overlooked by the Lincoln Cathedral, one of the finest pieces of gothic architecture left remaining in the world.
